TRAINING ACADEMY. Outstanding technical and hands-on training for airport staff are needed to ensure the level of safety required for airside operations. At the beginning of the pandemic, we were wondering how to supervise hands-on practice remotely, how to make sure every participant understood and how to evaluate the new capabilities of the delegates we train. This has been quite a struggle for us. Not anymore.
WHITE PAPER. Post pandemic airport recovery depends on how airports and airlines can tackle volatility in an affordable way, without sacrificing safety and efficiency. In a white paper titled The Elastic Apron, which ADB SAFEGATE’s Thorben Burghardt recently co-authored with Michael McElvaney from Jacobs, we explore the concept of operational elasticity and how it can aid airport recovery.
DUBAI AIRSHOW. Globally, the ATM industry has been struggling on account of reduced air traffic that has delayed investments in technology and systems over the last 18 months. The Middle East region has been no exception with a 60% reduction in air traffic in 2020 compared to 2019. However certain countries like the UAE, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Qatar have used this time to focus on shaping ATM and airside operations automation, optimization and collaboration through extensive adoption of technology and systems. Sébastien Jodeau, ADB SAFEGATE´s Managing Director ATM & Airport Systems is being interviewed pre Dubai Airshow about the Middle East ATC industry.

BRISBANE. One year since Brisbane Airport’s new runway opened, we take a look at how ADB SAFEGATE provided a turnkey AGL delivery for the most challenging airport project in Australia’s recent history. Tackling dredged sand and a high water table with a massive civil build, before installing and commissioning electrical infrastructure and airfield systems, our team completed the project in under 2.5 years. The airport now has a world-class parallel runway system, supporting up to 110 aircraft movements per hour. It’s the country’s most efficient, and comparable to international airport hubs like Singapore and Hong Kong in terms of capacity.
Wrocław Airport’s airfield maintenance team started to use ADB SAFEGATE’s Digital Airside Location-based Inspection and Service solution (ALIS) to improve scheduling and tracking of airside maintenance. Michał Zwierzyk, Manager Chief Power Engineer at Wrocław Airport shares his team’s experience of using our new cloud-based maintenance tool.
WHITEPAPER. Traditionally an owner/operator of an airport network would have installed a stand-alone Airport Operations Systems (AOS) at each and every airport to enable effective and efficient flight turnaround operations. That is now in the past. A truly multi-airport capable AOS means that multiple airports throughout an entire network of stations can all be managed from a single multi-airport AOS deployment, and elevate the entire airport operations ecosystem.
Soon, we will have the pleasure to resume with in-person training sessions in our factories and offices. We are looking forward to welcoming back our customers to our facilities, but we can’t just train the way we did before the pandemic. Why? Because it taught us the advantages of online learning and showed us new, hybrid ways to train that combine the best of in-person and online training.
