The project is automatically operating a series of lights installed on the take-off and landing paths, whereby the air navigation systems and ground systems are linked to the purpose of directing the aircraft electronically, while this process is usually done by receiving directions and communicating with the control tower.
The project aims to upgrade airport yard operations to a smarter level, as Dubai airports will accommodate air traffic more easily while enhancing safety and performance levels on time.
