Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Near You -

PERTH AIR­PORT’S dig­i­tal tech­nol­ogy will be in­stalled next year as part of a $20 mil­lion con­tract signed with Saab Sen­sis.

In­te­grated Tower Au­to­ma­tion Suite (IN­TAS) has al­ready been in- stalled at new con­trol tow­ers in Broome, Rock­hamp­ton, Ade­laide and Mel­bourne air­ports.

“By tran­si­tion­ing away from a man­ual, pa­per-based sys­tem, con­trollers are able to con­cen­trate more on the vis­ual sur­veil­lance of the air­port and air­craft, which sup­ports in­creased sit­u­a­tional aware­ness and en­hanced safety,” Airser­vices projects and en­gi­neer­ing ex­ec­u­tive gen­eral manager Mark Rodwell said.
