Honeywell will present its vision of the Connected Airport at forthcoming Airport Show 2016 being held from 9-11 May 2016.

On the heels of Dubai Airports’ recent announcement of successful implementation of Honeywell’s ‘Follow the Greens’ airfield guidance system, Honeywell will showcase ground traffic management (GTM) technology. The Honeywell technology brings about streamlined operations, optimised ground traffic flow and reduced controller-pilot communications.

The solution also helps reduce taxi times, saves fuel and cuts emissions while improving taxiway safety. Other technologies on display will include Honeywell’s SmartPath ground-based augmentation system (GBAS), which provides a precision navigation solution to increase airport capacity, decrease air traffic noise and reduce weather-related delays.

“The show is a great platform for us to be able to talk to our customers about our technologies, which are currently used in more than 500 airports worldwide,” said Sonja Strand, general manager for Honeywell’s global airports business.

The Honeywell Smart Building Score is a global index designed for comprehensive assessment of any building, evaluated 620 buildings across seven major Middle East cities – Abu Dhabi, Dammam, Doha, Dubai, Jeddah, Kuwait City and Riyadh. The study evaluated a building’s use of 15 technology assets to find out which systems are in place to make them green and productive.
