Reduce risk of accidental vehicle collisions within Aviation
Busy airports, short turn around times and limited space are just some of the factors which can add to the pressures on service companies who carry out pre-flight apron activities with aircraft.
During these activities many vehicles including luggage carriers, re-fueling trucks, re-stocking trucks and cleaning vans are required to operate in close proximity to aircraft.
If any contact or collision is made with the aircraft by a service vehicle, a damage inspection will have to be carried out before the aircraft is given the all clear to fly. Invariably this will delay aircraft departures which will lead to additional costs incurred by the aircraft operator.
Any serious damage which cannot be repaired on the airports apron will either require a replacement aircraft or flight cancellation, which can be extremely costly, time consuming and damaging to an airlines’ reputation.
To assist service operators working in close proximity to aircraft and reduce collision risks, ZoneSafe can be deployed to help protect the aircraft.
Typical pre-flight apron activities include:
- Approaching aircraft with engines running
- Passenger disembarkation and embarkation
- Baggage/cargo handling
- Aircraft maintenance
- Catering provision
ZoneSafe is particularly effective for reducing risk in Aerospace and Aviation applications:
- Can be installed on all types of industrial vehicles.
- Provides a full 360º detection zone from 3-9m around the vehicle or hazardous zone.
- Alerts the vehicle driver that the detection zone has been breached so necessary action can be taken to avoid an accident.
- ZoneSafe data logs any breaches, this makes it useful when investigating accidents or near misses.
ZoneSafe ensures full protection of an aircraft while it is on the apron especially to vital parts such as the engines, wheels and fuselage. Ground staff can quickly deploy the system to provide immediate protection and reduce the risk of collisions from vehicles.
ZoneSafe provides a low cost solution to help reduce the risk of collisions between service vehicles and high value assets such as aircraft during pre-flight apron activities.
