Jane's Airport Review Recognizes Company for Excellence in Air Traffic Control Industry

AMSTERDAM, Netherlands, March 9 /PRNewswire/ - ATC Global Stand R420.  Searidge Technologies, provider of intelligent video solutions to air navigation service providers (ANSPs) and airports, announced they were recognized this week for their innovation in the industry by Jane's Airport Review. The Innovation award recognizes small enterprises that have raised Air Traffic Management (ATM) performance.

The Searidge intelligent video platform IntelliDAR™ is enabling a new generation of ATM applications that are having a direct impact on ATM performance including remote tower services, automating runway lighting, surface conflict detection and alerting, A-SMGCS augmentation, and gap filling.  Proven in the market, IntelliDAR has been adopted by some of the worlds largest and innovative ANSPs, airports and companies including NAV CANADA, FAA, DFS, Malta Air Traffic Services, Abu Dhabi Airports Company (ADAC), and MIT Lincoln Laboratories.

"This award recognizes the hard work and dedication put in by the Searidge team to develop solutions that help advance innovation in the air traffic control industry," explains Moodie Cheikh, chief executive officer, Searidge Technologies.  "While the technology has had an immediate impact on ATM performance - particularly in the areas of runway safety and efficiency, it promises to have an even greater impact in the years to come as the deployment of remote towers become more widely adopted."
