at key high traffic intersections
OTTAWA, Aug. 19 /CNW Telbec/ - Searidge Technologies and its partner in
the Gulf region, Bayanat Airports Engineering & Supplies LLC, today announced
the award of a contract by the Abu Dhabi Airport Company (ADAC) to supply the
Searidge Technologies IntelliDAR(TM) system for advanced surface surveillance.
IntelliDAR, a non-cooperative system, provides surface surveillance
capabilities enabling air traffic controllers to have full situational and
visual awareness of the airport's newly constructed runway.
"Abu Dhabi International Airport is a growing airport with a
passenger-centric philosophy and a goal of providing best of breed systems for
our customers. We have chosen the IntelliDAR product which we believe will
provide the best solution for our surveillance needs," said Mr. Massimiliano
Dosi, Chief Operating Officer, Abu Dhabi Airports Company.
Abu Dhabi International Airport services the needs of the Capital of the
United Arab Emirates and is currently undertaking significant expansion to
ensure the best service for the capital city. A newly constructed runway will
allow the airport to provide better services to its airline customers. The
IntelliDAR system greatly enhances the information provided to air traffic
controllers, empowering them to make timely traffic management decisions with
a high degree of confidence. In cases of ambiguity, an air traffic controller
has the ability to visually validate what is seen on the screen by viewing the
target through the real-time video protocol provided by IntelliDAR.
"We are excited to be part of the explosive growth in the aviation
industry in the Gulf region" said Moodie Cheikh, president, Searidge
Technologies. "Abu Dhabi International airport is a busy airport with a
reputation for deploying world class technology and we are pleased they have
selected the IntelliDAR system".
The IntelliDAR system uses a network of digital imaging sensors, coupled
with advanced computer vision technology to detect and monitor traffic
movements on the airport surface. The system helps to increase the overall
safety of the airport surface through eliminating blind spots, detecting
non-cooperative targets, and mitigating the risk of possible runway
incursions. IntelliDAR requires minimal site preparation along with flexible
