EAST SYRACUSE, NY /PRNewswire/ -- Sensis Corp. has been awarded a contract by the Airports Authority of India to expand its Advanced - Surface Movement Guidance and Control System (A-SMGCS) at Indira Gandhi International Airport (New Delhi, India). The expanded A-SMGCS will provide surveillance coverage to address a terminal and runway expansion project. The expansion will include additional Sensis Multistatic Dependent Surveillance (MDS) multilateration sensors and a second Surface Movement Radar.
"Sensis A-SMGCS is designed with the future in mind, enabling the system to be augmented to accommodate the growth of the airport," said Tony Lo Brutto, Vice President and General Manager of Sensis Air Traffic Systems. "This design flexibility—in addition to the ability to support future technologies such as ADS-B—makes Sensis A-SMGCS an economical surveillance solution."
Sensis A-SMGCS at Indira Gandhi fuses data from multiple surveillance sources, including Sensis MDS, X-band radar and an ADS-B-based vehicle tracking system, to deliver accurate and reliable data to the Sensis Multi-Sensor Data Processor (MSDP). The MSDP fuses the surveillance data with advanced collision detection and alerting functionality to provide controllers with visible and audible alerts when an incursion may occur. Sensis A-SMGCS has been operational at the airport since 2006.
Internationally, Sensis is deploying its A-SMGCS at Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney Airports in Australia and Hong Kong International Airport. In the United States, Sensis' A-SMGCS is being deployed at 35 airports through the FAA's Airport Surface Detection Equipment, Model X (ASDE-X) program.
Sensis Corp. provides sensors, information technology, and simulation and modeling to the world's air navigation service providers, civil aviation authorities, airports, airlines and militaries. Sensis Corp. solutions are deployed around the world.
