Our ICAO-compliant, automated platforms for safe docking and apron management equip pilots with real-time intelligence on gate and apron movements. Our enhanced integration and data sharing capabilities, and apron lighting solutions increase productivity, reduce turnaround times, safer yet more efficient gate operations and apron management and lower operational costs.
