Airservices trials digital aerodrome service technology

DAS320

Airservices has selected Searidge Technologies to for a digital aerodrome service prototype, initially to provide a contingency solution for Sydney, with potential applications at other Australian aerodromes.

“Digital Aerodrome Services will allow us to optimise our future service delivery and improve safety outcomes for the industry and travelling public,” Airservices Executive General Manager of Air Navigation Services Peter Curran said.

“It also means we can support greater resilience at our major airports and be responsive to service level requirements.”

The SYD prototype will showcase the Ultra High Definition (UHD) views of the main operating areas and create a facility for controllers and the regulator to experience the extensive benefits and features of a digital tower, including its use for contingency operations.

“We are pleased to partner with Airservices Australia and are looking forward to sharing our knowledge and showcasing our technology to demonstrate digital towers as an agile and flexible method of delivering aerodrome services to support their long term growth, safety and asset management plans,” CEO of Searidge Technologies Moodie Cheikh said.

The program’s Define stage is currently underway and scheduled to be completed by March 2020.

Airservices is introducing digital air traffic control towers to help our air traffic controllers enhance service delivery and improve safety for industry and the travelling public.

Trials are being conducted this and next financial year that will help Airservices determine the technology’s suitability.
