A-SMGCS | Integrated Sensor-Guidance-Light

The integrated Sensor-Guidance-Light is being developed in order to integrate the highly precise and reliable MagSense Airport sensor technology and visual and audible guidance components into a unique product that can be implemented on the aerodrome surface without the need for construction work. The main idea is to technically integrate, i.e. to physically attach, MagSense Airport sensors with a taxiway center line light and to use the center line light as a source of energy and as an access point to data networks. The integrated light provides high-precision position information as a point sensor when detecting a nose wheel of an aircraft or a vehicle. The position report can then be sent to a Multi Sensor Data Fusion in standardized data format (EUROCONTROL ASTERIX). 

MobiliSis is currently looking to develop the integrated Sensor Guidance Light based on MagSense Airport as part of the BMWI's aviation research program V-3 in a 3-year program and to reach the product maturity. This also includes the necessary changes on the part of the firing infrastructure
