ADS-B based Airport Ground Movement Display System (ADS-B AGMDS)



ANSART’s airport ground movement display system is a state-of-the-art ADS-B based solution.

Our solution is a decentralized and expandable open-system, commercial of the shelf (COTS) computer platform, that provides Air Traffic Controllers with a full dynamic view of the traffic situation, showing surveillance area maps and target labels with the identification, position and other information regarding aircraft, vehicles and other relevant targets as target symbols derived from ADS-B or others sources.

The system can also be widely used by other airport stakeholders bringing visibility to airside operation, monitoring their vehicles, equipped with 1090ES transponder, positions and movements across airport operations areas such as aprons, maintenance, hangars and others covered by ADS-B Ground Stations.

It provides textual and graphical information available for presentation in various windows according to the tasks to be carried out by the particular users and could be deployed at any working position.

The system is designed to ensure safe and efficient movement of aircraft and vehicles on the aerodrome manoeuvring area, especially in the limited visibility conditions.

The system is developed in accordance with all spectrum of requirements of the International and European Standards, Regulations, Specifications and Guidelines and meets one of the key A-SMGCS (advanced surface movement guidance and control system) requirements – improvement of the surveillance function, namely, ensuring the identification and provision of accurate positional information about all types of traffic on the movement area (airfield), including the runway.

Together with ADS-B Ground Station and 1090ES vehicle transponder offered by Ansart it forms complete cost-effective solution aimed at ground movement monitoring, potential conflict situation identification and reduction of the risk of runway incursion.
