The Israel Airports Authority (IAA) has awarded a contract to Sensis to install an advanced surface-movement guidance and control system (A-SMGCS) at Ben Gurion International Airport.

The Level II A-SMGCS will provide a comprehensive view of the location and identification of all aircraft and vehicles on the airport's runways and taxiways.

The system will combine surveillance technologies such as Sensis multilateration, Sensis surface-movement radar (SMRi) and Sensis VeeLo NextGen vehicle locators.

The surveillance data collected from the new system will be integrated with Sensis Safety Logic conflict-detection and alerting algorithms to give controllers advanced visual and audible warnings of potential runway incursion situations.

The system will also record all events, including controller voice commands, for future playback.
