Within A-SMGCS, VAMS is the system able to perform the Guidance function. It is composed by the following modules:

  • Routing: assignment of the taxi-route to the aircraft depending on the predefined rules;
  • Guidance: automatic switching on of the center line lights in front of the pilot in order to show the right taxi-route;
  • Conflict Alert: switching on the stop bar lights at crossings and switching off the center line lights behind the aircraft in order to protect it during the taxiing.
