Improving Airport Ground Safety
LCGS will provide surface surveillance at U.S. airports to significantly upgrade efficiency and safety. This is especially critical at small and medium-size airports where air traffic controllers currently rely only on their "out-of-the-window" view of surface traffic as the primary means for avoiding conflicts and maintaining operational capacity and safety. That view can be severely hampered by adverse weather conditions, compromising safety for travelers.
