Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) has appointed defence and security company Saab to deploy its Aerobahn airport collaborative decision-making (A-CDM) solution at the airport.

The Swedish company will deliver its Aerobahn CDM platform, along with its A-CDM Milestone Manager and pre-departure sequencer.

It will also provide support and maintenance services at HKIA.

The CDM platform, which is in line with UROCONTROL A-CDM implementation guidelines, will help maximise the airport’s efficiency and enable customisation based on its needs.

"This award is further confirmation of Aerobahn’s power and flexibility since Saab has been chosen in a fiercely competitive market."

The Aerobahn A-CDM Milestone Manager enables information sharing and milestone-tracking capabilities meeting the recommendations of governance organisations EUROCONTROL, ETSI, EUROCAE, and ICAO ASBU.

The solution provides flight information and implements real-time progress updates in line with business-standard 16 A-CDM milestones.

Saab traffic management head Anders Carp said: "Saab’s Aerobahn CDM Suite enables customers to incrementally implement A-CDM all the way through to advanced levels and we are looking forward to a partnership with all relevant stakeholders at the airport.

"This award is further confirmation of Aerobahn’s power and flexibility since Saab has been chosen in a fiercely competitive market."

The system, which has been in production for over 12 years, is installed at 27 airports across the world.

Earlier this month, Saab also installed an SR-3 surface movement radar (SMR) at Vaclav Havel Airport in Prague, Czech Republic.
