Airservices Australia has commissioned the Saab Sensis Advanced - Surface Movement Guidance and Control System (A-SMGCS) at Brisbane airport for operational use.
The A-SMGCS provides air traffic controllers the location and identification of all aircraft on the airport's runways and taxiways.
Ken Kaminski, senior vice-president of Saab Sensis, says: "Our A-SMGCS is designed to grow with Brisbane as the airport adds its third runway and continues to expand its infrastructure. In addition, the A-SMGCS provides the precise surveillance needed for Airservices' Aerobahn airport surface manager to further address airport efficiency."
Saab Sensis adds that its A-SMGCS is now in operation at more than 40 airports around the world, including airports in Australia, India and the USA.
