The A-VDGS can also interface to ground power and/or preconditioned air units (ASE) to detect the on/off status and display the status to pilots and ground personnel. The system monitors and tracks usage of ASE by flight, providing critical data to aid in enforcement of ASE use and APU shut downs, as well as accurate emission reduction reporting.
The Future of Ramp Intelligence
Advanced visual docking guidance systems will become a standard for airports and airlines seeking new technology and solutions to increase capacity and improve performance in ground operations during regular and irregular operating conditions. New capabilities are sure to develop as more and more users start to unlock the somewhat hidden value of ramp intelligence technology.
