STAMFORD, Conn., Sept. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- PASSUR Aerospace, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: PSSR) announced today that Greater Rochester International Airport (ROC) has contracted for the PASSUR(R) Field Condition Report (FCR) to improve the completeness, timeliness, and distribution of its field condition reports and related information so that operational efficiency, safety, and cost effectiveness are enhanced for all airport users.
Rochester is the 15th U.S. airport to join the PASSUR National FCR Network, which consolidates airport conditions - including NOTAM and critical non-NOTAM information - for all participating airports onto a single screen, provides new levels of automation, and is available to airline system operation centers in the U.S. and internationally as a standardized airport reporting platform.
"We are proud to be part of this expanding network," said Susan L. Walsh, Esq., Director of Aviation at the Greater Rochester International Airport. "This system will allow for streamlined communications between airport operations, air traffic control, and our airline partners, particularly during rapidly changing winter weather conditions."
"Airport users need the most complete, timely, and accurate field condition information available," said Jim Barry, PASSUR President and CEO. "Rochester now gains instant access to a worldwide community of airport users, including the critical airline System Operations Centers/Operations Control Centers, who are accustomed to accessing their airport information on this standard platform."
The PASSUR Airport Operations Program
Airports are being asked to provide more cost-effective, efficient, and safe airfield operations for carriers, to help them achieve greater throughput, quicker turns and fewer ground delays - critical elements of airline profitability in today's challenging environment. Airports also want to consolidate airfield management functions onto a single platform to minimize staff requirements. The PASSUR Airport Operations Program provides the alerts, decision support, planning and analysis tools that airport ramp tower, operations, and communication centers need to run a more efficient and safe operation, and the web platform for cost-effective communication, coordination, and collaboration with all the airport's key constituencies. It includes modules for field condition reporting/eNOTAM integration, live dashboards of key operations metrics, flight and airspace visualization, and "long onboard" ground delay management (Tarmac Delay Monitor™).
