Innovative PASSUR System, The First of Its Kind, Enables Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport to Expand Capacity

Increasing capacity and removing constraints at one of the nation's fastest growing airports

STAMFORD, Conn., July 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- PASSUR® Aerospace, Inc. (OTC: PSSR), a business intelligence, predictive analytics, and big data company, announced that it has contracted with Broward County's Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) for an information and automation solution designed to increase traffic flows and capacity, and reduce delays and congestion, at one of the nation's fastest growing commercial airports.

This new capability, built on earlier modules of PASSUR Surface Management solutions, is applicable to all airports where demand is growing and the capacity of existing infrastructure is highly constrained – including regions like South Florida, where sustained growing demand is pushing the limits of the existing aviation infrastructure. The PASSUR solution delivers new efficiencies at a fraction of the cost of major capital investments, by ensuring that:

  • Arriving aircraft are promptly assigned a gate
  • All available airport resources are being optimized
  • Passengers experience a quick and seamless travel experience

This integrated solution is an important step toward Airport Collaborative Decision Making (A-CDM) in North America, which enables all key stakeholders to collaborate and coordinate on a common operating platform to prioritize high-value flights, reduce the number of aircraft waiting to take off, and sequence arrivals and departures to and from gate assignments.

  • The solution ensures that FLL and all of its key operational stakeholders, including airlines, are coordinating their actions by sharing timely, automated information about the status of arriving aircraft and surface traffic movements.

"PASSUR'S Surface Management Solution will benefit FLL's passengers by allowing them to deplane as quickly and efficiently as possible," said Mark Gale, CEO/Director of Aviation, Broward County Aviation Department. "Airlines will also benefit by reducing taxi time and waiting for an open gate, thus reducing fuel consumption and emissions." 

"It's great to work with an innovator like Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport," said Jim Barry, PASSUR Aerospace President and CEO. "PASSUR is focused on identifying, alerting to, and removing constraints in the airspace and on the airport surface – producing measurable value to our airline and airport customers."

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...

Large industrial manufacturing organizations are adopting the agile principles of cloud software companies. The industrial manufacturing development process has not scaled over time.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder.

As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
