Manage Surface Assets Across the Entire AOA

Solution Overview

RGi Commercial Solutions (RGi) offers a cost effective mobile and web-based solution providing highly accurate, once-a-second tracking of up to 5,000 powered and non-powered surface assets across the entire Airport Operations Area (AOA) to:

  • Display the location of all moving assets across the entire AOA for both the system users and the assets themselves.
  • Provide real time geofence alerts and metrics, allowing the system users and the assets to manage by exception, including runway incursion warnings.
  • Allow for robust post analysis reporting and historical replay of movements of all moving assets, allowing for rapid and complete forensic analysis.

Our solution improves airside operational efficiency, increases safety and enhances security.

Visualization, Alerting and Reporting Application

  • Cloud offering optimized for web and mobile platforms
  • Real time situational awareness and geofence alerts sent via text, email or existing interface
  • Historical reports, playback and analytics for all surface movements and events
  • Global access for airport, airport tenant and airport service provider users

Airport Benefits

The RGi solution:
  1. Improves the airside operational efficiency
  2. Enhances airport safety
  3. Increases security for the entire AOA
  4. Allows for management of surface assets by exception

Airport Applications

In terms of operational efficiencies, RGi’s solution allows for more effective utilization of staff/assets, more orchestrated surface movements through situational awareness of all surface assets and real-time notification of geofence violations, and more complete forensic analysis of incidents and traffic patterns for post mortem lessons learned and continuous process improvements.

In terms of safety, RGi’s solution provides knowledge of the location of all winter ops equipment, quick ID and location of all ARFF vehicles during an airfield incident, alert if red-tagged vehicles are put back in service before repairs and/or inspections are completed, notification of fire lane or loading zone violations, real-time runway incursion warnings, and use of historical reports for a better understanding of vehicle movement behavior trends to identify potential safety issues.

In terms of security, RGI’s solution ensures a safety zone around moving critical assets, provides rapid ID and location of all police cars and airport security vehicles during a security breach, monitors the movement and location of hazardous assets to confirm they are within their defined operating areas, and verifies that airport perimeter checks have been completed.

RGi also offers a cost effective mobile and web-based solution providing highly accurate once-a-second tracking of up to 5,000 powered and non-powered surface assets across the entire AOA to: (a) display the location of all moving assets with geofence alerts and metrics for both the system users and the assets themselves, including runway incursion warnings; and (b) allow for robust post analysis tools and historical replay of movements of all moving assets allow for rapid and complete forensic analysis.
