Saab Sensis stated that the Aerobahn airport surface management system it has installed at the John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) is integrated with several additional features.
Saab Sensis Aerobahn, a browser-based surface management system, reportedly enables airports, airlines, and air navigation service providers to more efficiently and cost-effectively manage and measure airside operations. The U.S.’ first operational Collaborative Decision Making (CDM) environment now features flight specific call for taxi times that can improve sequencing and bring down fuel burn and environmental emissions. More than 20 discreet frequencies will now carry ATC voice tracking so that users are able to listen to ATC instructions while viewing surface operations.
The Aerobahn system at JFK is also stated to be integrated with Delay Summary Tool and Request Response Manager. The delay summary tool delivers past and anticipated data while a request response manager handles advanced real-time communications of the overall system.
Ken Kaminski, senior vice president of Saab Sensis stated, “The New York Metroplex is a highly sophisticated and interrelated system that requires close coordination between the airport operator, airlines and FAA to ensure efficient ground operations at all three major airports. Since April, Aerobahn has provided the common platform and tools that enable all three stakeholders to proactively manage ground operations for reduced taxi times, greater fuel savings and less environmental emissions. These enhancements provide the JFK community with even greater insight, control and management of their industry-leading ground management program.”
Airside operational information like flight schedules, planned arrival and departure gates and passenger/bag connection information is effectively blended with accurate aircraft surveillance and identification so that real-time surface operations can be efficiently monitored.
Saab Sensis claimed that 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.
