Leveraging Technology Throughout the Airport SMS Lifecycle

AGATI

RECORDED: Thursday, September 7th, 2017 at 11:00 am EDT

Most airport layouts were designed when passengers played cards while waiting for a flight because an onboard meal was an expectation and the very idea of a smartphone would have been laughable.

What was once a mess of beam seating everywhere now has a multi-function use: part lounge, part cafe, part office and a wealth of amenities. New uses of spaces as well as new types of furniture are finding their way into the airport because today's passenger is really focused on getting to point B rather than the journey itself. Airport design and furniture elements have a stronger impact on the passenger experience than one may realize. There's the comfort. The durability. The usability.

Matt Dubbe from Mead and Hunt and Joe Agati from Agati Furniture will tackle these questions and others in: Airport Interiors are Experiencing Massive Change: What You Need to Know.

Leveraging Technology Throughout the Airport SMS Lifecycle - (7/17/2012)




Crisis

Today's airports, though owned and operated by local government entities, are besieged by competing operational requirements and mandates that dictate access control, identity verification, authentication and credentialing of local employees, airline staff and possibly even transient flight crews, which are determined by a myriad of legislation, federal regulations, state regulations, local codes and ordinances, as well as TSA security directives. In addition, advancements in security technology including biometrics, cooperation with government agencies, privacy impact, growth, new construction and reduced funding significantly impact the approximately 460 regulated commercial airports. All combine to create a number of new security and privacy challenges for airports that were originally designed for the business of moving passengers quickly and efficiently through the facility.

The RTCA are updating their recommendations on airport security including identity management and physical access control solutions. With the imminent release of updated legislation and directives, the TSA, with its statutory responsibility to assess threats to transportation, is considering mandates that would require airports to significantly change their identity and credentialing operations.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • How the TSA has mandated change in the past and its affect on airports
  • The History of TSA Mandates
  • Imminent New Mandates
  • Managing Change and Migration...Don't waste money on technology that may become obsolete.

Mobile Workforce Solutions

SITA

Tuesday, June 22nd, 2010 - 11:00am EDT

The air transport industry (ATI) is characterized by a constantly mobile workforce and a complex, dynamic workflow model, requiring workers to access and act on real-time information. In today's environment, however, many processes on the ground are still static, paper-based, and not as efficient as they could be - since they are unable to leverage the power of the information locked in ATI applications and systems.

The answer is a new breed of mobile workforce solutions that can deliver the right information at the right time to mobile field workers - using applications which can anticipate their needs and requirements based on a number of context parameters (such as 'state-of-the-process', location, time, staff certification, network-type, etc).

The Webinar covered all aspects of developing, deploying and supporting mobile workforce solutions. There was also a question & answer session.

Land Mobile Radio at your airport

FREE ONE-HOUR WEBINAR - Land Mobile Radio at your airport  gearing up for the digital switch. Hosted by AirportImprovement

Not long ago, airports and airlines had limited choices for wireless communications systems. But now, with widespread use of digital technology, rapid feature development, regulatory changes, and the emergence of voice and data applications tailored to wireless systems, the range of technologies and alternative solutions available is staggering.

The advanced features of computer-aided dispatch, in-vehicle report writing, and the instant access to applications have improved productivity.

  Sponsored by:
 SITA is the world's leading specialist in air transport communication and information technology (IT) solutions. Working closely with the air transport community, we innovate and develop IT applications and communication services across every aspect of the business.

Older communications systems used by many airlines and airports are not only limited in capability, but unable to expand or readily communicate with users/facilities in other locations. Added to this complexity are the changes to the spectrum with bandwidth being squeezed down and the requirement to be digital by 2013, which means a large investment for analog customers.

To address these shortfalls, many users are forced to consider building a new system. Smart systems planning is critical to constructing a new land mobile radio (LMR) system successfully in order to avoid significant delays and cost overruns.
