Toulouse, France, 25 November 2020

NAVBLUE and SARSYS-ASFT have signed a reseller agreement for the provision of NAVBLUE’s RunwaySense runway condition reporting data via SARSYS-ASFT’s MIDAS visualisation platform for use by airport operators.

This distribution agreement allows airport operators to access highly accurate runway condition data obtained from NAVBLUE’s RunwaySense braking action identification solution, via the SARSYS-ASFT MIDAS visualisation platform which shall integrate the data and present it with other key runway condition information. The integration is on-going and the integrated solution will be operationally available at 15-01-2021.

RunwaySense uses the aircraft as a sensor to identify the braking action, based on Airbus aircraft Performance models, against the FAA’s Take-off and Landing Performance Assessment (TALPA) Runway Condition Assessment Matrix (RCAM). The data generated is compliant with the mandatory ICAO Global Reporting Format (GRF), due to come into effect in November 2021.

Today, 20 airlines in all continents committed to contribute to RunwaySense, representing close to 1,000 aircraft.

RunwaySense is a web-based solution where airspace users share runway condition reports in real-time to better understand how the runway condition is trending, and to allow the airport to anticipate and mitigate slippery conditions.

MIDAS is a Collaborative Runway Assessment Platform for processing vast amounts and various types of data input. Through MIDAS data can be viewed, and complete runway assessments can be performed. Collected data is visualized and can be monitored in different views such as graphs, tables and maps. 

 

We are excited about this cooperation as it will add great value to our customers, Airport Operators around the world, and it is also a cooperation that is well in tune with our mission as it will make transportation safer

Fredrik Graflind, CEO of SARSYS-ASFT

"Integrating the innovative RunwaySense collaborative platform with SARSYS-ASFT’s MIDAS is the optimum solution for airport operators and their runway management teams," says Patrick Hagelauer, Vice President Strategy & Innovation and France Managing Director at NAVBLUE SAS. “The RunwaySense data allows users to have high confidence in the accuracy of the runway condition reporting.”
