Manchester Airport announces key milestone in Advanced Surface Movement Control System project


On the 5th March 2018, Manchester Airport formally appointed Saab Sensis Corporation for the supply and commissioning of Multilateration (MLAT) following an OJEU tender process. This announcement marks a key milestone in the airport’s Advanced Surface Movement Guidance Control System (ASMGCS) project, which has been co-funded by the EU’s Innovation Network supported by SESAR Deployment Manager.

Saab was selected as a market leader in the area of MLAT, who once commissioned will have implemented this safety-critical technology at the UK’s four busiest airports (including MAG’s London Stansted), representing enhanced safety for approximately 170m passengers every year.

Manchester Airport is committed to the implementation of ASMGCS in partnership with 14 other airports and ANSPs under the European SESAR Deployment Airport Grouping (SDAG). At this exciting stage in the project, Manchester Airport wishes to thank the bid leader Aeroports de Paris and the wider SDAG partners alongside the EU’s Innovation Network for their continued support. We look forward to working with our new partner Saab to deliver this essential ATM project.
