Offers airports new approaches to air traffic management with solutions like its Integrated Controller Working Position

ADB SAFEGATE is presenting its integrated tower solutions at the World ATM Congress in Madrid from March 7 – 9. Tower solutions are an integral part of its Airport Performance strategy that extends across four domains – Gate, Tower, Airfield and Services. What sets ADB SAFEGATE apart is its ability to integrate these solutions, moving away from a silo approach. This helps airports better manage growing traffic volumes safely and efficiently. The company’s latest solution, the Integrated Controller Working Position (CWP), will also be showcased at the event.

“Increasingly, Air Traffic Control (ATC) is becoming central to the overall airport operations setup, handling decisions on future traffic flows to support the tremendous growth in movements,” said Christian Onselaere, CEO, ADB SAFEGATE. “The terminal, airfield and tower, parts of the airport that worked quite independently before, need to work together closely. Integrating these siloes is where we can significantly impact airport performance.”

The ADB SAFEGATE tower portfolio* comprises an Advanced Surface Movement and Guidance Control System (A-SMGCS), called ACEMAX, Electronic E-strips (DIFLIS), Departure Manager (OPTAMOS) and Information System (INFOMAX). Together, these lessen air traffic controller (ATCO) workload, provide advanced safety net solutions, enable accurate routing and guidance and contribute to Airport Collaborative Decision Making (A-CDM) to improve predictability and efficiency in traffic flows.

The Integrated CWP incorporates important ATC tower systems into a consistent, user-friendly single screen to improve safety and efficiency. ATCOs can view multiple functions - surveillance and airport safety support, routing and guidance service, workflow support, meteorological data and navaids status, as well as monitor and control AGL from this screen.

ADB SAFEGATE tower solutions are deployed at major commercial and military airports around the world including Vienna, Innsbruck, Hamburg, Munich, Berlin, Tallinn, Lisbon, Lahore and Jakarta.

ADB SAFEGATE is at Booth #335 at the exhibition.
