Fraport AG has signed a contract for the implementation of INFORM’s GS RealTime and GS AirportMap to improve N*ICE GmbH’s de-icing operation.  The system will be hosted by Fraport and will provide optimised allocation of resources in the time-critical A-CDM environment for the N*ICE dispatchers.
GS RealTime optimises the deployment of staff and equipment, and creates tasks according the constantly changing flight schedules, taking into account A-CDM dependencies.
The system will be integrated into Fraport’s IT infrastructure with a number of interfaces to other systems, such as flight and turnaround status and weather.
GS AirportMap displays the de-icing resources based on geographical information from GPS, and monitors aircraft on-stand.  It interacts with its sister system, transferring operational status information and receiving task allocation information.
With the help of GS AirportMap, N*ICE will be able to choose whether to oversee the whole airport or just to concentrate on a hot spot, increasing operational awareness and visibility.
