Technology innovator Searidge Technologies has deployed its remote video solution at Canada’s London International airport to enhance the airport’s services.

With Searidge’s ATC-Grade video system, air traffic controllers operators (ATCOs) at the airport are currently trying to improve their ability to make surface management decisions.

"We have worked very closely with Searidge, running the system through extensive testing to ensure that it meets all operational requirements."

The solution uses high definition pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) cameras which provide ATCOs from three working positions with a live view of traffic throughout various areas of the surface including taxiways, runways and thresholds.

NAV Canada vice president operations Larry Lachance said: "We have worked very closely with Searidge, running the system through extensive testing to ensure that it meets all operational requirements.

"Searidge has continued to demonstrate the value of video to augment visibility in the tower and deliver an additional level of information to our controllers improving their ability to manage the airport’s surface."

The remote capabilities of the ATC-Grade video system help in overcoming the limitations of the air traffic control tower and traffic ranging from a mixture of general aviation, scheduled commercial traffic, flight training and manufacturing.

ATCOs also get the ability to manage the PTZ functionality due to the customised human machine interface (HMI). It also helps in removing blind spots.

Searidge Technologies chief technology officer Alex Sauriol said: "Close collaboration with NAV CANADA has led to another successful deployment of our technology to remotely monitor and manage traffic.

"We offer a complete remote tower solution that is modular and flexible. Because of that, we are able to apply various features from our technology toolbox to solve blind-spot or line-of-site issues faced by both airports and ANSPs."
