Dallas/Fort Worth International is upgrading its airport-wide Safedock advanced visual docking guidance system (A-VDGS) from ADB SAFEGATE, including the addition of the newest automation features to enhance collaborative-decision making.
First installed in 2008, Safedock is now operational at all gates. ADB SAFEGATE is enhancing the system in four terminals (A,B,C, and D) with information-sharing features to streamline gate operations and traffic flow, even during irregular operations. Safedock units will also be installed in Terminal E gates.
New systems have already replaced 39 Safedock units in Terminal D. Installation work in the other terminals will begin this year, for phased completion in the coming years.
