Safegate’s Gate Operating System has the capability to link all gates via a local or wide area network and integrate with all airport and airline information systems, providing real-time gate intelligence and shared flight data that can be used to make improvements to many aspects of airfield operations.
Through its interface capabilities Safedock can identify the position of the passenger boarding bridge to verify that the bridge is safely stowed prior to commencing a docking process. The system also ensures that incompatible aircraft are prevented from parking at adjacent gates.
Real-time gate status allows operations staff to know at a glance which gates are occupied or available, making last-minute gate changes faster and making it possible to dock any aircraft, from any airline, at any gate.
Integration allows the Safedock LED screens to double as a ramp information display system (RIDS), displaying flight information to ground crew whenever the systems are not actively docking aircraft and avoiding an investment in a separate system.
The system can also capture and report actual in and out times which can be automatically sent to operations for tracking/analyzing gate utilization and accurate billing. Turn times can be tracked by city pairs, gate, crew or time of day.
