AGLAS is an integrated Airfield Lighting Control and Monitoring System which allows Air Traffic Controllers to centrally and remotely control and monitor individual lights for the approach, runway, taxiway, stopbars and apron, improving safety and ground traffic efficiency. By allowing the ATC to switch on only lights required for specific visibility conditions, the AGLAS enhances life-time of the lamps greatly and reduces energy costs. A range of logging and analysis capabilities also makes maintenance planning easier. The AGLAS is multi-functional, modular and flexible, and can be customized on request depending on airport size, traffic volume, specific conditions or different CAT operating modes. It uses similar state-of-the-art powerline communication technology, as used today in all modern wireless applications, such as WiFi, BlueTooth, DAB, DVB etc.
