    Brooklyn Park, MN (September 2012) – Safegate Airport Systems, Inc., a member of the Safegate Group and the largest provider of advanced visual docking guidance systems (A-VDGS) and ramp management technology, is pleased to announce that its Safedock A-VDGS is now providing automated docking on gates at the new Terminal 3 at Las Vegas McCarran International Airport and the recently renovated Terminal D at Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport. Safegate will also install docking guidance systems on gates at Los Angeles International Airport as part of the New Tom Bradley International Airport Project.

    McCarran is recognized as a global leader in aviation technology, and the new T3 has furthered that reputation by employing 100 percent common-use systems. By utilizing Safedock A-VDGS on all T3 gates and Safegate’s gate operating system (GOS) to network gates and integrate with airport information systems, McCarran has created a common-use gate operation that provides the flexibility needed to maximize gate capacity and improve performance.

    The Safegate GOS provides real-time gate information and processes flight information to start the docking. The Safedock A-VDGS uses a laser scan to verify an approaching aircraft type and the system’s LED display guides pilots to the proper stop position without the need for marshallers. The automated system gets aircraft to the gate without delay and T3 ground personnel are free to focus on other duties to further improve turn times and passenger service.

    I'm so glad they didn't chose "Dangerous Gate Systems", Safegates main competitor.
