Brisbane Airport puts Saab Sensis system into operation.


Australian air navigation service provider Airservices Australia said it has commissioned Swedish aerospace technologies firm Saab Sensis' Advanced Surface Movement Guidance and Control System (A-SMGCS) at Brisbane Airport for operational use.

According to Saab Sensis, the A-SMGCS provides air traffic controllers the location and identification of all aircraft on the airport's runways and taxiways for improved safety and efficiency at Australia's third busiest airport.

The Saab Sensis A-SMGCS fuses surveillance data from Saab Sensis multilateration sensors, Surface Movement Radar and VeeLo NextGen vehicle locators for the location and identification of all aircraft and vehicles operating on the airport's runways and taxiways.

Further, the surveillance data is integrated with Saab Sensis' Safety Logic conflict detection and alerting algorithms to provide controllers with advanced visual and audible warning of potential runway incursion situations.

AtBrisbane, the Safety Logic uses Current and Predicted Separation algorithms for more precise alerting and fewer false alarms.
