GPS, GIS & Wireless Technologies for Effectively Supporting Airfield Safety Including Incursion Reduction

Airfield operations have increased in complexity and volume over the past several years due to a number of factors including but not limited to increased regulatory requirements, budget constraints, requirements for more take-offs/landings, training issues and losing experienced airfield operators (retirement for example). The Flight Safety Foundation has indicated that as air traffic is on the rise, issues such as mitigating human error and training are critical to continuing to ensure safe working environments, not to mention the need to adopt new technologies to enhance safety and support an economically viable industry. As such, new tools and resources to help manage the workload and improve its efficiency, while maintaining and or enhancing safety, are appreciated by airport operators.
