Safety Line and Aéroport de Paris work on a common project for airports

Nowadays, airport safety and capacity issues have become increasingly complex to manage. For this reason Safety Line and Aéroports de Paris (or ADP), the airport authority that owns and manages the fourteen civil airports and airfields in the Paris area, decided to start a project called AWACS, that aims at improving airport operations by using RADAR data.

One already existing feature of the solution is to estimate the braking action in order to provide Air Traffic Controller, Pilots, and Airport Operators with objective, accurate and up-to-date information on the braking condition of the runway.

Supported by ASTech and Systematic Paris-Région, two competitiveness clusters, as well as the Single Interministry Fund (FUI), the project benefits from state aid to anticipate the growth in air traffic and avoid airports congestion.
