Françoise Boucarut, Executive Director of ALPHA-CIM
We are deeply pleased and proud to be honored with this Innovation Award in the interDATA category. To be recognized by the international airport community is very important, and it is really humbling to receive the award in the presence of so many leaders, really giants, of our activity. The award is a credit to all those who have worked hard on developing ISAC over the past years.
ISAC is a lead-on & stop bar control system with Fiber Optic.
Many runway incursion incidents results from pilots misunderstanding of ATC instructions and poor weather condition with minimal visibility. The visual ground guidance system called lead on & stop bar system is critical to secure the traffic. ISAC’s ambition is to control this visual guidance with the highest efficiency.
The main benefits of ISAC are its excellent response time, its ease of implementation, its suitability for incursion detection & ASMGCS and its expandability at will by airports personnel.
This solution brings to airport’s operators a more responsive and reliable equipment than current basic powerline products.
As a reference, ISAC is currently being installed at Casablanca International airport.
The award was voted for by the international airport community, and ALPHA-CIM was formally presented with the first prize during the Opening and Awards Ceremony, which took place on the morning of 8 October.
