Fast Service –
without damaging the outer skin
The rapidly increasing volumes of passengers going through airports is giving rise to the need for processes, including those on the ground, to be made more efficient and digitalized. Every centimeter counts – on the tarmac, being able to measure positions and distances with absolute precision when docking support equipment to aircraft is critical. It is the only way to guarantee the safety of the passengers and protect the aircraft’s delicate skin. This is where radar can fully demonstrate its advantages, as ground staff can fully rely on its measurement function even in fog, snow, and rain.
Since a commercial aircraft does not always come to a stop in exactly the same place and ground staff need to service a wide variety of aircraft types, being able to measure position and distance with absolute precision is essential for docking a passenger bridge safely. The actual height of the passenger bridge above ground must also be determined precisely so that the docking apron hits its target exactly.

Radar sensors from Symeo provide a reliable database for the control systems of the ground support equipment. The approach path and speed of the ground support unit are automatically adjusted until docking is complete.
In this way, other support equipment can also be docked safely, for example:
