The T-Series Safedock Advanced Visual Docking Guidance Systems (A-VDGS) provide active guidance to pilots to support safe, efficient and precise automated aircraft parking during virtually all operating conditions. 

Automation creates a safer operation by reducing the opportunity for error. Allowing pilots to self-park speeds up the docking process, aircraft are parked faster in all kinds of weather conditions, fuel burn and emissions are reduced and ground crew are free to focus on preparing the aircraft for departure. 

Safedock’s infrared laser and 3D scanning technology actively scans the gate area both vertically and horizontally to capture and track aircraft. The unique ability to scan horizontally, allows the A-VDGS to measure parts of the aircraft on either side of the centerline to discriminate between aircraft types and subtypes.  

All Safedock models include our proprietary 3D technology which has become the global standard in making automated aircraft parking possible by: 

  • ensuring gate compatibility, 
  • enabling safe docking in low visibility, 
  • and, accommodating virtually all gate layouts. 

To enable fully-automated docking, the Safedock A-VDGS are integrated with airport and airline systems, via SafeControl Apron Management, to access flight information such as arrival time, the scheduled aircraft type and adjacent gate rules.
