Smarter Airport

Honeywell NAVITAS software suite brings smart technology to the airport,
connecting the numerous areas of an airport's operation and streamlining
their complexities into an easily manageable system.
IT'S A smart world - smart phones, smart cars and
smart homes are not the way of the future but
the way of life. It only makes sense that airports
would follow suit. While it may seem daunting to
take the complexities of an airport and make them
smart - being able to connect to a network and be
interconnected, share and interact remotely - the
software exists. Airports no longer need be on the
sideline of smart.
The software is called Honeywell
NAVITAS and takes all aspects of an
airport's operations and houses them
under one roof.
"Airports around the world are
seeing a striking increase in traffic,
which increases complexity to ensure
safe, reliable, and efficient operations.
Honeywell NAVITAS helps orchestrate
complex environments through mobile
applications and dashboards that are
intuitive. It harnesses the power of IoT
(Internet of Things) to make data user
friendly and make airports smarter in
the process," said Sonja Strand, Global
Manager Global Airport Business at
Strand said that Honey wel l
NAVITAS, designed by the Honeywell
User Experience (HUE) team, is made
with the philosophy that: "Good
technology serves the needs of the people
who use it. It does not force them to adapt
to its limitations."
"From concept to creation, our
airport software is designed to fulfill
this principle," Strand continued.
"Honeywell NAVITAS was created

to help stream line and infor m
the meticulous work of engineers,
technicians, air traffic controllers, and
security personnel to ultimately help
passengers get where they need to go
on a daily basis."
With that in mind, the Honeywell
NAVITAS suite is not a one size fits all
software - it's made of different modules
tailored to the area of the airport where
it will be utilized.
Those modules are:
* Honey well NAV ITAS Tower
Manager, which helps improve the
productivity of air traffic controllers
by enhancing situational awareness
of airport surface operations. It gives
controllers access to rich, real-time
information on ground, air traffic and
meteorological conditions, presenting
the information in a single, easy-touse interface, and providing visibility
into a multitude of traffic events while
reducing the chance for error.
* Honeywell NAVITAS Surface
Manager, which enhances ground
traffic safety, fluency and throughput
in a wide range of weather conditions,


while helping to reduce fuel burn
and carbon footprints. The module
also provides the software necessary
for airports to use all four levels of an
Advanced-Surface Movement Guidance
and Control System (A-SMGCS),
including sur veillance, routing,
guidance and airport safety support,
along with enhanced movement
conflict detection and resolution, which
can include "follow-the greens"-based
guidance that automatically illuminates
lighting on the tarmac to guide aircraft
to clear taxiways.
* Honeywell NAVITAS Engineering
Manager, a tool for engineers and
technicians to manage maintenance.
It enables them to effectively monitor
system health, easily perform fault
diagnostics and streamline workflows,
which also often helps reduce
operational costs. It features a mobile
interface and automates the diagnostics
and failure reporting, while simplifying
manual tasks and reducing paperwork,
giving personnel better visibility
into the availability, reliability and
performance of airside systems.
