SafeControl Apron Management System

ADB SAFEGATE’s SafeControl Apron Management uses integration and real-time intelligence to optimize the use of resources and improve the predictability of events on the apron. With a focus on streamlining the aircraft turnaround and pre-departure sequencing processes, airport and airline performance is enhanced through faster gate turns, reduced delays and congestion and increased productivity and cost-efficiency.

Turn awareness and real-time management

The strategic location at each gate, allows the Safedock A-VDGS to be used as intelligent sensors to track the progress of the aircraft turnaround and the position of aircraft in the gate area.
SafeControl Apron Management is the integrator that connects the A-VDGS to flight information systems (FIS) and other systems or equipment on the apron to provide a real-time overview of gate status through constant monitoring of the A-VDGS and connected systems. The integrated system enables fully-automated docking and allows users to manage gate operations remotely from a centralized management system.
Real-time gate availability, equipment status and other milestone information is shared between stakeholders, supporting airport collaborative decision making (A-CDM) and allowing operators to manage in real-time to avoid disruptions and streamline the turn process.
In an integrated set-up, the Safedock A-VDGS is used as a Ramp Information Display System (RIDS), to further improve communication. The system provides flight and ground crew with real-time data such as target off block times, countdown timers for specific actions or other information vital to the turn process.

SafeControl Apron Management supports surface surveillance systems by using the A-VDGS to track aircraft movement within the gate area on arrival and during pushback and automatically sending position details to the A-SMGCS.
