Background & Policy context

As the ongoing growth of air traffic puts airports under pressure for greater capacity and increased safety, an important investment and research effort is aiming to equip airports with Advanced Surface Movement Guidance and Control Systems (A-SMGCS). In the past ten years, most of the world’s largest airports have initiated the implementation of an A-SMGCS Surveillance function together with the deployment of multilateration (MLAT) and surface movements radar (SMR). However, regional airports could not afford the implementation of such surface surveillance technologies because of prohibitive infrastructure costs. 

Objectives

NewSense is a research and development project that aims at improving safety and efficiency of operations primarily in secondary airports with innovative low-cost surface surveillance solutions, based on 5G cellular networks for the long term, and mmWave radar for the medium term, allowing the implementation of affordable Advanced-Surface Movement Guidance and Control Systems (A-SMGCS).
