[Avionics Today 08-13-2014] NICE Systems and AECOM Technology Corporation will help Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) extend its situation management capabilities from the control room to the field. The airport deployed the NICE Situator Enterprise Geographical Information System (EGIS) web application, which enables field personnel to view and log on their tablets security and operational incidents in Situator.
The web application uses geospatial and mapping capabilities of Esri's ArcGIS Server to provide customized, layered views of airport buildings, property and infrastructure. All relevant incident stakeholders can visualize the same incident on a map and engage in interactive dialogue via the comments log. They can also share response plans, such as an evacuation route, by drawing on the map, annotating it and saving it to the system.
The web application will also help field operators more efficiently manage day-to-day tasks, such as Federal Aviation Administration-mandated Part 139 airfield inspections, under which commercial service airports are required to conduct various assessments of each runway; examine pavement markings, lighting, signs and safety areas; and oversee ground vehicle operations.
