Runway Safety Area Detection System:
The RSAMS system monitors the targetmovements (aircrafts and vehicles) on the¬†Runway/Taxiway intersection in order to:
- detect Runway incursions (i.e. unauthorized¬†runway entries)
- detect manoeuvre errors (i.e. unauthorized¬†exits from RWY).
Each violation is notified to the Ground Controller¬†(GC) through an acoustic alarm and appropriate¬†visual signals displayed on the RSAMS HMI¬†(Human Machine Interface) in TWR.
‘Moreover each event notified by the system is¬†recorded on a database to be consulted after if¬†required.
The monitoring of the of target movements isextended also to vehicles that move on the¬†peripheral roads that enter directly the runways,¬†where the system also controls traffic lights toprevent possible errors of the drivers.
Detection section¬†RSAMS uses double microwaves sensors that,¬†consist in a Transmitter (TX) and a Receiver¬†(RX), both installed and located near the holding¬†point of the RW/TW intersection or near the¬†marker of the holding position of the roads.
