ASTAVA – Autonomous System for Tracking Airplanes and Vehicles at Airports

As an additional application to the main BCAS interface, Volacom has developed a fully automatic system for tracking vehicles at the airport and airplanes in the vicinity up to 20km. Now, the BCAS system could be controlled based on the traffic, using automatic functions to “clean the runway” from birds and mammals without the need of human interference. The system knows the exact position of the airplane and executes the necessary command accordingly.
