The Searidge ATC-Grade video solution provides Airfield Lighting (AFL) operations with the capability to remotely monitor the area with a real-time video of the full coverage area presented via a one-look panoramic display. With the addition of IntelliDAR, the Searidge Intelligent video platform for airport surface management, they are also able to detect and track all targets in the given area and are provided zone highlighting functionality which show if the monitored area is occupied or vacant.

The Searidge ATC-grade video solution which uses commercial day, night, and thermal camera sensors, and Searidge proprietary video software, makes visually obstructed and geographically remote areas easier and safer to manage and provides a cost effective method for advanced surface management. The flexibility and scalability of the IntelliDAR platform will also allows DXB to further expand the system to automate airfield infrastructure such as lighting system and barrier management.
