Available Software Systems

AFIDS – Airport Flight Information Display System

This system is really the front end to an airport management system. It displays information to the public in a format selected by the airport. The displays are made up by information being entered or by interface or triggered from other systems.

  • Fuel System

Security Sentinel

With the advent of IATA’s 2D Barcode Resolution 722C/792 covering the use of PDF417 barcodes on boarding passes an ever increasing number of airlines are now allowing passengers to print their own boarding passes which allows them to bypass the normal check-in process and proceed directly to security.

The major benefit is to business travellers with only carry on luggage thus speeding up the check-in process and allowing this class of passenger to move more quickly through the airport.

All of the above means that the airport security staff require a system to thoroughly check the e-boarding passes to ensure the following:

  • The point of origin is valid
  • The flight number is valid
  • The sequence number has not been used previously
  • The seat number has not been used previously
  • The date of the flight is the current day
  • The door or gate is still open
  • The flight has not been cancelled

Gate Guardian

With the advent of IATA’s 2D Barcode Resolution 722C/792 covering the use of PDF417 barcodes on boarding passes an ever increasing number of airlines are now allowing passengers to print their own boarding passes.

All of the above means that the airport/airline staff required a system to thoroughly check the e-boarding passes at the gate to ensure the following by flight:

  • The point of origin is valid
  • The flight number is valid
  • The sequence number has not been used previously
  • The seat number has not been used previously
  • The date of the flight is the current day
  • The flight has not been cancelled
