OTTAWA, Aug. 19 (UPI) -- The Abu Dhabi Airports Co. has contracted Searidge Technologies and its partner Bayanat Airports Engineering & Supplies for airport surface surveillance.
Abu Dhabi Airports contracted Canada-based Searidge Technologies and the company's Middle East-based partner Bayanat for the installation of Searidge Technologies' trademarked IntelliDAR surface surveillance at the Abu Dhabi airport in the United Arab Emirates.
Officials say the IntelliDAR, through a network of digital imaging sensors, provides runway surface data to alert airport authorities of any compromised aircraft situation or plane incursions as part of an effort to add an additional measure of security.
"Abu Dhabi International Airport is a growing airport with a passenger-centric philosophy and a goal of providing best-of-breed systems for our customers," Massimiliano Dosi, Abu Dhabi Airports chief operating officer, said in a statement.
"We have chosen the IntelliDAR product, which we believe will provide the best solution for our surveillance needs."
