The FAA selected Saab to deliver the ASDE-X program to 35 of the busiest airports in the 美国. 该系统包括合作传感器和非合作传感器, 融合监视和飞行数据, 安全逻辑的应用, 并显示在空中交通管制塔中. The system provides situational awareness to controllers and an enhanced level of safety through automated safety alerts. 在世界的其他地方, 这个解决方案被称为高级表面管理, 控制与制导系统(A-SMGCS).
基于ASDE-X项目的成功, Saab was chosen to extend the technology to nine additional airports: Anchorage, 安德鲁斯空军基地, 辛辛那提/北肯塔基, 克利夫兰, 堪萨斯城, 新奥尔良, 匹兹堡, 波特兰和旧金山.
进一步提高安全性并向飞行员发出警报, the FAA worked with Saab to create the 跑道 Status Light (RWSL) program.
RWSL employs surface surveillance data to automatically illuminate lights at taxi hold positions and takeoff hold points to warn pilots of occupied runways or if an aircraft is landing for a more direct means of preventing incursions without increasing controller workload.
最近, Saab worked with Leidos to supply electronic flight strips to the FAA through the Terminal Flight Data Management (TFDM) program. This technology is planned to be deployed to nearly 90 air traffic control towers. 除了, Saab is supplying core surface management technology which will be used to improve efficiency at many of the nation’s largest airports.
