Passur contracts Surface Management System in 3 airports

Passur Aerospace, Inc. (OTC: PSSR) has contracted and installed its Surface Management System at three airports, and is under contract for three additional installations of its Surface Management System, the company said.

Passur Surface Management — a module of Passur Integrated Traffic Management (PITM) — is integrated with terminal and en-route flight tracking for a gate-to-gate airport, flight, and airspace visualization platform. Beyond tracking aircraft on the surface, it includes dashboards of key performance metrics, alerts, and predictive analytics to enable management by exception and optimization of key operational and business metrics.

Passur SMLAT technology broadens and strengthens surface surveillance at an airport, either to extend coverage to areas not currently within an existing surface surveillance system´s capture range, or to provide surface surveillance capabilities to an airport where none are currently in place.

The extended, gate-to-gate surveillance helps to man­age and optimize constraints across the entire flight, including some of the most complex, expensive, and disruptive operations such as tarmac delays, gate holds, taxi queues, turn times, return-to-gate, diversions, and deicing. It also provides analytical and diagnostic tools to identify specific operational areas that require focus and attention, for long-term continuous improvement.

Passur® Aerospace provides business intelligence through predictive analytics and decision support technology for the aviation industry, primarily to improve the operational performance and cash flow of airlines and the airports where they operate.
