FAA Selects Searidge Airport Surface Management Technology - System to be Used for Runway-light Automation at Teterboro Airport

    Gatineau, Canada (ots/PRNewswire) - The United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has selected  the Searidge Technologies intelligent-video-based surface management system, IntelliDAR, to provide runway-light automation at the Teterboro Airport,  New Jersey. Teterboro Airport is the oldest functioning airport in the New  York City area and is one of the most active general-aviation airports in  the United States, serving predominantly the private and corporate aviation  communities.

    In an effort to improve safety and efficiency, the Searidge system  will be used to evaluate the automation of runway lighting. "The FAA is  evaluating unique surface management solutions at Teterboro Airport to  automatically control runway lighting. If successful, operational  specifications for such a system will be developed," says Donald Gallagher,  FAA Technical Center Visual Guidance Program manager.

    IntelliDAR uses thermal video sensors and advanced computer vision  technology to provide RADAR-like tracking of aircraft on the airport  surface. Information from the IntelliDAR surface management system will be  used to automatically control portions of the threshold runway lights. This  project demonstrates the flexibility of intelligent-video-based surface  management technology. It is an alternative to RADAR and Multilateration  systems, and can be used in a wide variety of applications from runway- light automation, to low-cost ground surveillance and apron management.

    "This is a significant win for Searidge; the FAA has a leadership role  in the industry and demonstrates that intelligent-video systems for air  traffic control and airports have really come of age. The FAA joins  Searidges' growing customer list that already includes leading ANSP's like  NAV CANADA and DFS", says Alex Sauriol, Vice President ATM/Airport Products.
