Searidge to install surface surveillance systems at Seattle-Tacoma

Searidge Technologies has secured a contract from the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to install intelligent video platform IntelliDAR at Seattle Tacoma International Airport in Washington, US.

Searidge Technologies has secured a contract from the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to install intelligent video platform IntelliDAR at Seattle Tacoma International Airport in Washington, US.

Searidge uses sensor-based technologies to provide low-cost, basic, ground surveillance capability in non-movement areas at small to medium-sized airports where the deployment of Airport Surface Detection Equipment Model X technology is not viable.

Under the contract, Searidge will provide its intelligent video platform IntelliDAR to provide a distributed set of non-cooperative sensors (video cameras) that are strategically located to provide surveillance near the airport’s terminal.

The surveillance cameras provide all-weather performance and a long-range view to give controllers full visual confirmation of apron and movement areas.

The system will also provide real-time positioning, automatic alerting of incursions, live video feeds and archived data for incident review, resulting in a more secure and efficient airport surface.

The contract is part of an FAA-sponsored technology performance assessment led by the University of Illinois’s Centre of Excellence for Airport Technology.
