Leonardo, through its subsidiary Selex ES Inc., will deliver the AeroBOSS Runway Incursion Warning System (RIWS) technology at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW), which is part of the airport surface management solution portfolio for surveillance and navigation route, precision approach and landing . The contract includes the delivery of hardware and software as well as the integration of the RIWS system in 500 vehicles.
AeroBOSS RIWS warns vehicle drivers of possible dangers before they enter the runway area. This technology helps prevent runway break-ins, improve coordination between vehicles and generally ensure safety.
There are approximately 3,100 airports worldwide with commercial air services, but only a small percentage have runway break-in prevention systems. AeroBOSS was developed for air navigation service providers (ANSP) and airports in order to improve safety efficiently and economically. The Dallas Fort Worth RIWS program is expected to be a model for other airports as well. Selex ES Inc. offers the same level of security as DFW to more than 25 centers around the world.
Leonardo is committed to supporting and protecting people and communities with its latest generation technologies, including airport management, in line with the Be Tomorrow – Leonardo 2030 Strategic Plan. With a presence in more than 150 countries and a wide range of capabilities in this sector, Leonardo is able to meet the needs of airports and air carriers. The company provides solutions for air traffic control (ATC), surveillance sensors, cybersecurity systems, communications, weather radar, navigation aids and baggage handling systems (BHS). Leonardo provides efficient and reliable support in the field of air traffic management (ATM), including traffic management for unmanned systems (UTM).
