Version 1.7 of the program includes customizable two and three-dimensional models of airspace, runways and gates, the company said.
Airports will use the program to calculate taxi times for all flights on the surface and create automated alerts via email and text messages when user-defined taxi time thresholds are exceeded.
“Symphony OpsVue is a cloud-based program that uses Next Generation aircraft flight tracking data from the most accurate, comprehensive, integrated surveillance network available,” Ted Carniol, general manager of commercial aviation solutions, said in the release. “This real-time situational awareness will help airport operations to manage the time it takes to load a plane and to de-ice it during the winter months.”
The company is providing flight tracking data to Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.
