Saudi Arabia’s King Abdulaziz International Airport (Jeddah) and King Fahad International Airport (Dammam) will install advanced – surface movement guidance and control Systems (A-SMGCS) and wide-area multilateration (WAM) systems.

The Sensis A-SMGCS fuses data from multiple surveillance sources to deliver accurate and highly reliable data. The A-SMGCS also provides advanced conflict detection and alerting through audible and visual alerts.

The WAM surveillance component of the system will be integrated into the A-SMGCS to track and separate aircraft on approach up to 50nm from the airport.

GACA Air Navigation Services vice president Mohammed A Al-Salmi said that Sensis had the experience to provide fully integrated system that meet the high-accuracy surveillance required for both airports.

“The integrated A-SMGCS and WAM approach also simplifies our training, reduces maintenance costs and gives us the ability to easily adapt the systems to meet any future airport needs,” said Al-Salmi.

The airports also use Sensis VeeLo NextGen vehicle locator units to track and identify the vehicles on the airport surface.
