Ho Chi Minh City airport to deploy Saab system.


Vietnam's air navigation service provider Vietnam Air Traffic Management Corp said it has commissioned the HITT A3000 Advanced Surface Movement Guidance and Control System at Tan Son Nhat (Ho Chi Minh City) International Airport for operational use.

The A-SMGCS from HITT, an organisation recently acquired by Swedish defense and security company Saab, provides air traffic controllers at Vietnam's busiest airport with the location and identification of all aircraft on the airport's runways and taxiways for improved safety and efficiency.

According to Saab, the A-SMGCS uses surveillance data from a new surface movement radar for the location and identification of all aircraft and vehicles operating on the airport's runways and taxiways, with the ability to integrate multilateration and Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast (ADS-B) surveillance in the future.

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

The system also features recording and replay of the voice communications synchronized with the traffic display picture and Visual Control Room, and apron controller working positions.

The A3000 from HITT is one of the industry's most widely deployed A-SMGCS, with more than 40 sites around the world, including multiple locations in Europe (Finland, Ireland, Netherlands, Sweden, Turkey and more), Asia (China, India, Singapore, Taiwan andVietnam) and South America (Brazil).

Saab serves global markets with products, services and solutions ranging from military defence to civil security.
