Leader: Heathrow Airport

Description

 Concept of Operation has been developed to clarify the AGL and field infrastructure component design and architecture requirements for an integrated ASMGCS level 4/5 Surface manager (SMAN).

 A holistic Options analysis and selection process is being undertaken to assess the functional and safety integrity requirement of the Ground Movement Control System as a system design that is fully congruent and potentially pre-integrated with the ASMGSC4/5 Surface Manager.

 Primary Cable specification, distribution and operational architecture is being surveyed to scope design and installation of an airfield-wide GMCS primary cabling matrix to allow floating separation and necessary system integrity for automatic/.semi-automatic operation.

 Existing AGL system architecture is undergoing resilience and communication architecture modification to allow for validation testing of floating separation and seamless operational transition to the new GMCS/SMAN function.
