The SafeControl family of airport solutions was developed by Safegate Group to improve safety and efficiency by bringing automation and integrated systems to the airfield. SafeControl monitoring and control solutions for airfield lighting and surface guidance systems are trusted by airports and air traffic management worldwide.
SafeControl – Apron Management (SAM) is the newest SafeControl software module offering unmatched integration and data sharing capabilities to maximize safety and efficiency through customized control and monitoring of the apron. SAM can track activity and monitor status whether or not gates are equipped with Safegate’s Safedock Advanced Visual Docking Guidance System (A-VDGS).
SAM uses the A-VDGS, or connection hubs for gates without A-VDGS, as intelligent sensors to collect and distribute real-time gate and flight data. Vital information is shared between airport, airline and air traffic control systems, making SAM a key step toward an Airport Collaborative Decision Making (A-CDM) program to improve communication and efficiency.
SAM provides the information and control needed to solve the toughest challenges on the apron.
- ensure safety at the gate
- maximize gate availability and uptime
- improve gate turns and gate-to-gate performance
- create a shared-use gate environment
- generate and share critical information
- reduce operating costs
