Airservices Australia has commissioned an advanced surface movement and ground control system at Brisbane airport.
The system, worth A$35 million ($36 million), provides an enhanced electronic picture of every aircraft across all runways and taxiways through the collection of surveillance data from multiple sources.
It is able to predict conflicts between vehicles and aircraft, and multiple aircraft movements before they can occur, allowing air traffic controllers to take early corrective action.
"The new system offers better conflict detection for controllers and a lower risk of surface collisions," says Airservices executive general manager air traffic control Jason Harfield.
The system is scheduled to be rolled out at Perth airport later this year.
