In today’s high intensity airport environments, flight and operational information must be processed quickly and cost-effectively for an ever-growing number of partners and staff – locally, nationally and internationally. A crucial factor in determining the success of your airport operations is the smooth dissemination of this information. Fortunately, new communication technologies such as the internet and intranets create new possibilities for the distribution and display of information.
In developing the WEB Information System (WebFIDS), AirIT has expanded its Flight Information Display System (FIDS)with the addition of a key new component. WebFIDS facilitates the transfer of FIDS data via the internet or an intranet in a consistent fashion. The FIDS data can be called up and displayed individually on a PC using a standard browser.
With its highly flexible configuration, WebFIDS offers virtually limitless opportunities for distributing information to participating partners while ensuring a maximum degree of access control.
Conventional operation of display monitors often requires special monitor controllers. By allowing for the transfer of data among existing computers within the airport network, WebFIDS represents a cost-effective alternative.
