[Avionics Today June 19, 2014] Exelis will provide its Vehicle Movement Area Transponder (VMAT) and Symphony MobileVue solutions to San Francisco International Airport (SFO). The airport is looking to use the solutions to enhance its surface operations.
VMAT can transmit position and produce unique call signs for ground vehicles being operated on the airport surface. The Symphony MobileVue solution can provide airport operations staff and ground-based vehicles with a common airfield picture at all times.
"Adding these transponders will enable SFO to precisely track all vehicles on the airfield, reinforcing our overall commitment to safety and security," said San Francisco International Airport Chief Operating Officer, Ivar Satero.
