Sensis Corporation’s surface multi-lateration system at London Stansted has gone live. NATS air traffic controllers at Stansted are using the system’s high-accuracy surveillance to monitor the movement of aircraft and vehicles on the airport’s runways, taxiways and stand areas to increase the safety and efficiency of the airport’s surface.

“Controllers at Stansted now have the same surveillance capabilities as Heathrow and Gatwick to effectively and safely manage surface traffic in all weather,” says Alistair Clark, NATS programmne manager. “Additionally, using the same surveillance platform across three key airports is cost-effective for NATS as it simplifies training and maintenance.”

Sensis multilateration uses multiple low-maintenance, non-rotating sensors to triangulate aircraft and vehicle locations based on transponder signals to provide air traffic controllers with precise aircraft position and identification information regardless of weather conditions.
