EAST SYRACUSE, N.Y., Sept. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Aerobahn® airport surface management system, made by global ATM leader Saab Sensis, is now available for tablet computer platforms, including Apple iOS and Google Android. The Aerobahn tablet version gives users the mobility and flexibility to proactively manage airport and airline resources and plan for future events.
Users can perform all the functions they would with Aerobahn's desktop application, including access to real-time surface traffic, active management of flights and workflow states, and awareness of significant events such as a flight approaching the Tarmac Delay Rule using Aerobahn's flexible Dynamic Rules Engine. No further hardware or software modifications are needed once Aerobahn is added to the tablet.
"By placing Aerobahn on a tablet, users can take situational awareness, current flight data and powerful decision support tools anywhere on the airfield," said Ken Kaminski, senior vice president of Saab Sensis. "This makes it easier for airlines, air navigation service providers and airport operators to make critical, real-time decisions that affect operational performance and cost, at any time or place with a wireless internet connection."
According to Saab Sensis, Aerobahn combines airside operational information, such as flight schedules, planned arrival and departure gates and passenger/bag connection information, with precise aircraft surveillance and identification for a real-time, comprehensive view of surface operations. Authorized users can access Aerobahn through an internet connection and PC.
Aerobahn also has a number of customizable tools that enable responsive management of surface operations, including departure/arrival queues, runway use status, and traffic flow monitoring—resulting in less emissions and improved operational performance. All events are recorded for future playback to identify trends and develop new procedures to mitigate delays or similar events in the future. Aerobahn also provides users with the ability to create reports based on numerous variables for detailed analysis of operations.
Aerobahn is the most widely deployed airport surface management system in the industry, being used by airlines, airport operators and air navigation service providers across the globe.
