(Runway Safety Area Monitoring System)
- Patent N°: RM2002A000408 Juli 31, 2002
RSAMS monitors the target movements (aircrafts and vehicles) on the RWY/TWY intersections 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 through an
acoustic alarm and appropriate visual signs.
The system can be equipped with traffic lights that signal to drivers the clearance into the Runway:
The RSAMS system moreover, if integrated with the stop bar system, has the task to switch on and off, according to the position of the target, the stop bar and lead-on lights, in case of authorized entry.
