Zürich Airport will be safer thanks to ARSI (Advanced Runway Safety Improvement), a new system that includes Indra Navia’s InNOVA technology. Swiss newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung (NZZ) tells the story.
In March 2011, an air traffic controller at Zürich Airport issued take-off clearance to two aircrafts on two different runways. The problem was that the runways are crossing each other. This particular situation ended well as the air traffic controller and one of the pilots both realized the danger in time to prevent a collision.
Indra Navia is proud to work with Skyguide, Skysoft and Zürich Airport on a new solution that will improve runway safety by preventing similar situations from occurring. A new data program called ARSI (Advanced Runway Safety Improvement) will give air traffic controllers an electronic warning in case they make conflicting decisions. Our InNOVA technology is an important element of this solution.
