Beijing International Airport is one of the world's busiest and most rapidly developing airports. Safegate International of Malmo, Sweden, has been entrusted to help assure the safety and efficiency with movement of Beijing's more than 60 million air travelers and Olympic Games visitors. Safegate is the global leader in aircraft docking guidance systems and addressable light systems for terminals, taxiways and runways.
To handle Beijing's rapidly growing air travel volume, the huge international airport is to be expanded with a new terminal, adding more than 100 gates. Each new gate will be equipped with the Safedock® Advanced Visual Docking Guidance System to safely and efficiently guide the aircraft to its parking position.
The SafeControl® system helps Pilots with the best, safest and quickest route between runway and terminal. Safegate's SafeControl® and ASP systems will all be an integrated part of Beijing Airport's Advanced Surface Movement Guidance and Control System (A-SMGCS). Beijing Airport's more than 23,000 airfield lights will be under the direct and dynamic control of Safegate's systems.
Together, these Safegate systems reduce aircraft turnaround time and enable busy airports such as Beijing's to manage increased traffic with improved safety, efficiency and operational awareness, even during extreme weather conditions.
