US Airways has selected defense and security company Saab subsidiary Saab Sensis Corporation’s Aerobahn airport surface management system for use at its three hubs located at the Charlotte-Douglas (CLT), Philadelphia (PHL) and Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airports (PHX).  Saab Sensis Aerobahn will provide US Airways with real-time visibility of all ground operations.

Saab Sensis will integrate US Airways’ workflow processes into Aerobahn for a centralized, automatically updated system that tracks the steps needed to manage arrivals and departures. In addition, by using proprietary US Airways data feeds, Aerobahn will display the aircraft position and state in the gate areas without deploying a gate surveillance system.
