Airports Soar with New Technology for Safety and Operational Excellence

US airports face the challenge of complying with the FAA’s Safety Management System rule, necessitating better incident detection and reporting, particularly in outdoor areas like runways and taxiways. Traditional methods of supervision prove cumbersome and error-prone, prompting airports to adopt affordable micro-location technology, such as IoT sensors and wearable locators, for real-time asset tracking. A major Midwest airport has implemented Volan’s geofencing solution, which exemplifies this approach, offering instant breach alerts and detailed data for investigations.
