Many A-SMGCS in use at European airports and worldwide have difficulties to meet the requirements of the European minimum standard EUROCAE ED-87C. This is true, although the standard is not fully adapted to the operational requirements of the new A-SMGCS functions. This shows why airports across Europe and beyond have been actively seeking technological solutions for a number of years in order to increase the detection quality of their sensors (for example, with respect to spatial accuracy, probability of detection, and number of detection gaps). The airports are striving to improve the safety on the aerodrome surface and to use the new A-SMGCS functions. MagSense Airport can deliver very exact position information in standardized data format (EUROCONTROL ASTERIX) to an A-SMGCS as a point-acting, highly precise, cost-effective and interference-independent sensor. In addition, MagSense Airport is very easy to implement as a Supporting Sensor Technology. This applies irrespective of whether sensor bus systems are to be used, or integrated sensor guidance lights.
