ADB SAFEGATE is demonstrating a number of airport performance solutions at Airport Show Dubai that aim to help airports meet rapidly rising demand, safely and efficiently.

With the Middle East experiencing 4.3% annual growth in passengers, the region is at the forefront of the aviation market’s growth. Airports can substantially increase capacity by integrating and automating systems across tower, airfield, gate and landside operations, as well as their maintenance processes.

At the Airport Show Dubai on 29 April – 1 May, ADB SAFEGATE is focusing on how securely integrated systems enable airports to use their existing infrastructure more efficiently to increase capacity. This enables them to delay or even avoid costly capital investments to build new infrastructure. The company’s stand #6140 will showcase a number of features, as described below.

The first showing in the Middle East of ADB SAFEGATE’s next-generation Advanced Visual Docking Guidance System (A-VDGS), the Safedock X, which combines new surveillance technologies, modern display capabilities and advanced integration to ensure safe docking in all weather conditions. Bringing fully automated airport apron management a step closer to reality and acting as a gap filler in airside surveillance, Safedock X increases apron and gate utilisation for high traffic handling capacity.

A showcase of ADB SAFEGATE’s Total Airport Management solutions that further integrate airside and landside systems, covering several airport and airline processes relating to operational performance, baggage management and passenger processing. A step forward towards the digitisfation of the airport industry, ADB SAFEGATE’s application of advanced data analytics is providing airports with increasingly powerful ways to optimise operational efficiency and improve their traffic handling capacity.

A demonstration of ADB SAFEGATE OneControl which eases ATC workload, improves situational awareness and helps maintain the highest airport safety and efficiency. OneControl smartly integrates ATC tower systems to provide a consistent interface and create new capabilities such as advanced safety net solutions, workflow support and enhanced routing and guidance.

The cloud-based ADB SAFEGATE Airside Location-based Inspection and Service solution (ALIS) takes airfield maintenance into the digital era. The asset management solution combines efficient scheduling of airside asset maintenance with accurate tracking and reporting. ALIS helps airports plan and schedule preventive maintenance more easily and implement corrective maintenance more quickly, reducing downtime and significantly improving operational availability.

“Dubai is one of the top five most visited cities in the world and at the heart of one of the most dynamic regions for the aviation sector. Strong growth in demand is putting the region’s airports under intense pressure. ADB SAFEGATE is a leading provider to the Middle East of intelligent integration solutions that cover all parts of the airport,” says Christian Onselaere, CEO, ADB SAFEGATE. “Our systems provide better information, smarter tools, closer collaboration and easier ways to help keep airport operations running smoothly.”

With its extensive airport operations product and service portfolio, backed by deep operational know-how, ADB SAFEGATE is helping airports globally achieve the necessary integration. The company applies an operational and consultative approach that analyses an airport’s current situation and its future aims. This then leads to a solution that can boost aircraft movements safely and optimise airport efficiency.
