US-based company ADB Safegate has been selected to modernise gate operations at Terminal 1 in Incheon International Airport, South Korea.

Under the deal, the company will replace the airport’s existing aircraft parking system with its latest Safedock Type 1 advanced visual docking guidance system (A-VDGS).

The project will also see the expansion of the company’s control and monitoring system that would be deployed at Terminal 2 of the airport to allow integration with other external systems.

This will enable the Incheon Airport to streamline its gate and apron operations. A single control solution will also be deployed for the docking systems at both Terminal 1 and Terminal 2, which is scheduled to open this month.

“ADB Safegate will be responsible for delivering another 44 units of the Safedock Type 1 A-VDGS to replace the camera-based systems at Terminal 1.”

As part of the deal, ADB Safegate will be responsible for delivering another 44 units of the Safedock Type 1 A-VDGS to replace the camera-based systems at Terminal 1, in addition to providing training, commissioning and testing services.

ADB Safegate CEO Christian Onselaere said: “Gate operations are a critical element of overall airport performance, and we look forward to helping IIAC achieve significant improvement.

“Their belief in our best-in-class 3D laser scan technology for docking, a strong sales effort by our Asia-Pacific (APAC) central team and our ability to partner locally and provide superior services helped us secure the deal.”

The expanded gate control and monitoring system will include enterprise application integration (EAI) for the airport’s flight information management system (FIMS), airfield lighting (AFL), master clock and aircraft operations monitoring system (AOMS).

The installation and commissioning of the project are scheduled to be completed by August.
