EAST SYRACUSE , N.Y., Jan. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Sensis Corporation today announced that Luftfartsverket Air Navigation Services (LFV) has selected Sensis Multistatic Dependent Surveillance (MDS) to improve the capacity of traffic flow on the ground at Stockholm-Arlanda Airport. Sensis MDS will be integrated into the airport's existing SMGCS, improving overall system reliability and safety by providing heightened surveillance accuracy and automated labeling of aircraft and vehicles in the gates and movement area.System performance will be met with the deployment of 16 remote units and in less than 12 months.

"LFV considered a number of solutions before deciding on Sensis," said Rolf Norman , manager, ATM Systems and Infrastructure Luftfartsverket AirNavigation Services. "Sensis' multilateration technology is being used operationally by major airports worldwide. And it has the high accuracy,reliability and scalability required to ensure our investment addresses our needs today and tomorrow."
