System to enable remote management of Miquelon airport
MADRID, Spain, March 8, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - World ATM Congress Stand 826. Searidge Technologies, global provider of Remote Tower and airport surface optimization solutions to Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs) and airports announced that their Remote Tower solution has been selected by Direction des Services de la Navigation Aérienne (DSNA) for Saint-Pierre (FSP) and Miquelon (MQC) airports.
To improve the efficiency of managing the Miquelon airport, the Searidge Remote Tower platform will enable operations from MQC to be remoted to FSP.
"Searidge's experience in remotely managing airports of different sizes and topographies was a key differentiator in the selection process," says Luc Collet, Head of Air Traffic Control, Direction des Services de la Navigation Aérienne. "The flexibility of the system, quality of video and versatility of the interface will give our Controllers enhanced views of the surface, enabling them to effectively manage traffic in all weather conditions."
The Searidge Remote Tower platform features a highly advanced Human Machine Interface (HMI), completely customized to DSNA's requirements. High definition day/night visible, thermal and pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) cameras will be installed at MQC to display real-time information to air traffic controllers at FSP. Video images from distributed cameras will be stitched together and run through sophisticated algorithms to offer a seamless panoramic view of the surface and approach path, presented on 4K displays that feature touch screen zoom in/out options.
"Using our technology platform and working closely with DSNA and their Controllers, we are able to offer a system that specifically addresses their requirements," says Alex Sauriol, Chief Technology Officer, Searidge Technologies. "Our collaboration allows us to deliver a solution that is in-line with what Controllers need and want to use to ensure safety and operationally efficiency."
