Overview

ATIMS™ – Asset Tracking and Incursion Management System is a GPS based tool that uses a high quality airfield moving map display.

All of the required hardware is installed in the vehicle, without the need for special equipment on the airfield.  Using a touch-screen computer, the system provides airfield vehicle operators with their location, direction of travel and most importantly, an indication of impending safety issues.  ATIMS™ warns the vehicle operator so that action may be taken before an incident occurs.  With built in Runway Incursion Warning System (RIWS) logic fully compliant with the FAA AC 150/5210-25, ATIMS™ assists vehicle operators to navigate the airfield safely.

ATIMS™ provides a proximity alarm to alert the vehicle operator when approaching critical points on the airfield.  These warnings are based on vehicle velocity.  The distance where the warning is triggered increases with speed, allowing the vehicle operator ample time to properly react even when the vehicle covers more ground.   The warnings can be customized to both voice and tone.  Zones are also customizable, providing the airport with capability to set alerts for locations of the Hold Line Markings, ILS Critical Areas, Runway Safety Areas with both standard and non-standard dimensions, and other areas as required.

The system also allows for vehicle tracking and viewing of airfield vehicle activity, both in real-time and historically, right from the Airfield Manager’s desktop and/or Supervisor’s vehicle.
