The HMI is highly configurable; the information presented on the screen can be selected to meet all site-specific requirements. This includes the determination whether data is shown at all and how the display looks.

 

 

Arrival and Departure Management System (OPTAMOS)

OPTAMOS – as a part of the SafeControl Suite ATM package – is comprised of two tools for accurate planning of Arrival and/or Departure streams. The most advanced algorithms combined with a clear HMI provide a user with accurate and easy to handle software support. OPTAMOS derives its name from its main task – the most optimized and economic traffic flow for Arrivals and Departures.

 

Digital Departure Clearance System (DECLOS)

DECLOS – as a part of the SafeControl Suite ATM package – provides ATC and Airlines with the option of retrieving a Pre Departure clearance using the on-board Data link equipment. ACARS is used as a communication vehicle and Pre Departure Clearances are transmitted automatically negating the need for any further Air Traffic Controller action. Implementing DECLOS marks an important step to reduce frequency congestion and freeing up Air Traffic Controllers workload.

 

Foreign Object Debris (FOD)

Runway Hazard Management System

SIT has partnered with Leidos, the global security leader to introduce FODetect, an automated FOD solution collocated with runway edge lights and is the most powerful solution available today to improve runway safety, operational efficiency and increase runway capacity.

FODetect automatically and continuously scans operational areas and uses sophisticated image and radar processing algorithms to monitor runway conditions during day and night for FOD, wildlife and equipment status — even during inclement weather conditions.

The system automatically separates birds from other FOD types, and then automatically alerts the airport’s wildlife team in real time, day and night. The upgraded product enables remote real-time auditory bird deterrence, completing the cycle of runway bird management.

FODetect also alerts operators, characterizes objects, assists with safe clean-up and allows incident tracking.

The system's capabilities are based on a unique hybrid radar-optical sensing technology that utilizes optimized radar algorithms, advanced image processing software and close range detection for unprecedented performance.

Birds Collision Avoidance System (BCAS)

SIT is the soul partner of Volacom, the world leader in birds’ protection and deterrence system in Saudi Arabia.

The Bird Collision Avoidance System (BCAS), produced by Volacom, consists of multiple interconnected modules. Main functions of the system are:

·         Detection

·         Recognition

·         Deterrence

·         Monitoring

·         Data logging

Detection functions are performed by thermal and daylight stereo cameras, constantly scanning the environment for incoming flying objects.

Once an object is detected, the data is analyzed by proprietary software. When the system recognizes the flying object as a bird, it positions the acoustic module, which emits a proprietary sound signal. Thus, Acoustic Startle Reflex (ASR) is evoked and the bird changes its course, flying away.

This unique deflection approach causes no harassment and the avian species cannot get accustomed to the signal.
