Sensis Corp's ASDE-X system is now operational at Miami International Airport.


Sensis Corporation, a provider of sensors, information technology and simulation and modelling to air navigation service providers, civil aviation authorities, airports, airlines and militaries, announced on Monday that Miami International Airport is now operating with Sensis' Airport Surface Detection Equipment, Model X (ASDE-X).

ASDE-X is a ground surveillance system which provides air traffic controllers with improved situational awareness of surface operations and runway incursion detection and alerting.

The system combines surface movement, radar, multilateration and Automatic Dependent Surveillance - Broadcast (ADS-B) surveillance information to provide air traffic controllers with accurate real-time position and identification information of all aircraft and vehicles on the airport surface. It also features runway conflict detection and alerting technology.

Miami International Airport is the 20th airport in the US to receive ASDE-X through the US Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) ASDE-X programme, which will provide the technology to a total of 35 airports.
