Transpoco, the leading telematics and aviation fleet management software provider, has developed a bespoke de-icing monitoring solution for a major airport client, with the co-operation of vehicle manufacturer, Schmidt.
The technology was commissioned to solve the problem of the airport having no visibility of vehicles moving around the airport, or of having no digital record of where, or how much, potassium acetate was being used in its Schmidt de-icing equipment. The airport team were also unable to robustly report that all necessary de-icing work had been completed to airport operations and environmental agencies if required.
To successfully solve the problem, Transpoco were tasked with installing the monitoring technology which involved cooperating with Schmidt to update the software on its controllers in the de-icing equipment to ensure that the data feed was compatible and readable by the Transpoco devices. As a result of the installation the airport operations team were able to provide accurate reports in real-time of usage and coverage on site to ensure aircraft stands, aprons and roadways were treated appropriately and in a timely fashion.
Commenting on the airport project, Transpoco CEO, Andrew Fleury said “The development of this bespoke technology is another example of how Transpoco can adapt its product to the many varying needs of the aviation world. The important cooperation with Schmidt also demonstrates how the Transpoco team can form productive partnerships to deliver the ideal solution to the customer.” Fleury added, “Thanks to our skilled development team and the opportunity to adapt a vehicle manufacturer’s software, we have produced a solution that can be offered to the industry at large”.
