Saab’s Advanced-Surface Movement Guidance and Control System (A-SMGCS) is now operating at the Juanda International Airport in Surabaya, Indonesia.

According to the Swedish defence and security company, the A-SMGCS is a standards compliant system which offers surveillance of airport runways, taxiways, stands and on approach.

Saab Industrial Products and Services, Air Traffic Management business unit head Mike Gerry said: “We at Saab are pleased to be working with our partners in Indonesia to improve safety through advanced air traffic management tools such as the Saab A-SMGCS.”

Saab’s A-SMGCS delivers accurate situational awareness and advanced safety nets capabilities in a bid to enhance safety and efficiency at many of the busiest airports in the world.

The system features a surface multilateration system, vehicle locators (VeeLo), fusion processing, safety alerts and controller working positions.

“We at Saab are pleased to be working with our partners in Indonesia to improve safety through advanced air traffic management tools such as the Saab A-SMGCS.”

It can be delivered as a stand-alone solution and also includes Saab’s advanced multilateration ground station, the RU7, as well as a modern processing system that generates a complete situational awareness picture for controllers.

A-SMGCS also features a Controller Working Position (CWP) that displays an integrated ground/air traffic picture and customises the information that is presented based on roles and areas of responsibility, thereby helping to decrease a controller’s workload.

Saab’s A-SMGCS includes all the expected functional elements of a high-end A-SMGCS system, such as HMI, surveillance, safety nets, routing, and guidance, as defined by ICAO, Eurocontrol and EUROCAE.
