Airfield Ground Lighting

Airfield ground lighting (AGL) for visual guidance is at the heart of airfield operations. 'Intelligent' lighting makes the visual guiding process easier and improves situational awareness by switching lights on and off according to information shared by airfield surveillance and aircraft tracking systems. This allows for optimised aircraft routing to and from gates and a more efficient traffic flow, while maintaining or even raising the level of safety.

Automated lighting system

ADB SAFEGATE offers a complete AGL portfolio, allowing for an upgrade to the latest intelligent technology and integration of the lighting system within the existing infrastructure. We can offer modular solutions, allowing for future expansion and full integration with easy maintenance. With a holistic approach to the airfield lighting systems, it is possible to decrease runway incursions, increase throughput and minimise maintenance downtime.

With more efficient and flexible flow of aircraft, the carbon footprint of the airport is decreased. In combination with our Individual Light Control and Monitoring System (ILCMS), our AGL system can greatly improve taxiing procedures. With ILCMS, every individual light on the airfield can be checked and quick maintenance can be carried out if necessary.

Follow the greens

ADB SAFEGATE offers an end-to-end approach that combines our expertise in AGL design with market-leading AGL products and solutions, system engineering and maintenance. With our holistic approach we can tailor-make systems that are reliable and cost-efficient to implement and maintain.

Our product range includes the latest safety solutions and management systems, including LED runway and taxiway lights, precision approach and landing systems, as well as surface movement radars and integrated remote units that allow for installation with fewer parts.

Our ILCMS makes ground movements safer and faster while providing real-time AGL status information to complement the verbal communication between tower and pilots. With ILCMS the ATCO can better guide incoming and outgoing flights.

ADB SAFEGATE solutions can be installed as stand-alone AGL systems or integrated with other third-party systems. They are also the base for the ultimate intelligent airfield solution, where the pilot simply has to ‘follow the greens’ to and from the designated gate, efficiently and safely.

Airports with the need and ambition to expand can start integrating parts of the ADB SAFEGATE solutions during runway refurbishment to allow for a future ‘follow the greens" system.

Our automated solutions will help you:

  • Maximise safety from approach to departure
  • Increase throughput by maximising operational reliability
  • Handle traffic safely in all kinds of weather
  • Reduce maintenance time by more efficient replacing of specific lights
