ASUSS Aircraft Surface Safety System

Preregister for a trial

About the product:

Airport incidents are a result of wrong turns, not stopping at designated stop bars or entering restricted areas, not clearing the runway or junction, and alike. Most created by miscommunication, language barriers, or simple human mistakes.

IATAS has developed a unique system to seamlessly eliminate ATC/pilot induced airport safety issues.

Based on airport rules and procedures, ASUSS or the ATC marshal aircraft breaks in cases such as triggered stop bars and wrong taxiways or junction turns.

A Pilot's view of the airport moving map provides aircrews a visual depiction of the route, associated turns and their distances from current position.
