System to provide airport with enhanced situational awareness
DOHA, Qatar, Nov. 12, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Airport Exchange, Stand #111.
Searidge Technologies, provider of intelligent video solutions to Air
Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs) and airports, announced that the
Port of Oakland has invested in their ATC-Grade Video System for
Oakland International Airport (OAK). The system will provide the
airport with enhanced situational awareness.
ATC-grade video augments the operators view, making visually obstructed
and geographically remote areas easier to see. The implementation of
the system immediately benefits airports, optimizing operators'
situational awareness and confidence while improving safety and
efficiency of daily surface operations.
"Searidge's innovative video and surface management solutions will
provide immediate benefits to OAK, " said Deborah Ale Flint, Director
of Aviation for the Port of Oakland, which owns and operates OAK. "The
Searidge video technology platform provides a decision support tool
that will enhance our view of the airport's surface."
The Searidge ATC-Grade Video system intuitively consolidates multiple
camera scenes to provide controllers with a seamless, real-time view of
a particular area of interest. Using visible cameras with Pan-Tilt-Zoom
(PTZ) functionality helps operators have a clear perception of ground
traffic enabling them to make critical decisions quickly. The system
also provides several safety and reliability features including the
proven fail-safe software platform, redundant architecture, and video
archiving for incident review.
"We look forward to working with the Port of Oakland and are confident
that ATC-Grade Video will address their needs," says Alex Sauriol, Vice
President, ATM/Airport Technology, Searidge Technologies. "They have
invested in a commercially proven solution that is in use by ANSPs and
airports on three continents today. These systems are replacing or
augmenting the operators' out-the-window (OTW) view with video from
cameras deployed parallel to each other and stitched together to
provide a single panoramic view of the area."
