Thales awarded innovative Airport Operation Control Centre contract for “Lyon Saint-Exupéry” airport
Thales has been selected by Aéroports de Lyon for the supply, integration and support of the new airport operation control centre of the “Lyon Saint-Exupéry” airport.
The Airport Operation Control Centre (AOCC) which will equip the airport, is designed to meet the evolving needs of modern airports like “Lyon Saint-Exupéry”. The AOCC is an innovative and advanced integration platform which combines operations management and security systems into a seamless solution, thus addressing the complexity of managing complicated airport environments.
Thanks to its innovative process optimisation solution, Thales’s modular and scalable AOCC will allow Aéroports de Lyon to run airport operations efficiently and effectively. The solution integrates a number of different systems, an approach which enhances global situation awareness, monitors key performance indicators and facilitates collaborative decision making. As a result, the AOCC can promptly identify and manage events and alarms thanks to the integration of all airport systems, including, security, airport IT, airside systems and technical monitoring.
In concert with Aéroports de Lyon’s expansion plans for the airport, the project is scheduled to be completed in 2015 and the new AOCC will manage both the existing terminal and the new one under construction.
This new project confirms Thales’s global airport security expertise, complementing its successful references and security solutions across many major international hubs including Dubai, Doha, Durban and Singapore.
