SAIC Begins Work on Integrated Airport Management System at Denver
Company to Integrate One of the First Airport Management Systems of its Kind
MCLEAN, Va., April 29, 2013
MCLEAN, Va., April 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Science Applications International
Corporation (SAIC) [NYSE: SAI] has begun work on Phase I of Denver
International Airport's (DIA) $4.5 million initiative to develop and implement
an Integrated Airport Management System (IAMS). Implementing a highly-capable
command and control/event management platform as the centerpiece technology of
the IAMS will provide enhanced data collection and exchange, organizational
connectivity, and situational awareness and management across the airport's
entire spectrum of operations.
Providing greater continuity and timely information for daily and emergency
management, the IAMS will serve the needs of several key operations centers,
including the Airport Communications Center. In this three phase project,
SAIC will integrate numerous disparate systems and applications into a single,
advanced technology software platform for DIA – a solution that will provide
the airport's operation and management teams with critical and more effective
information, allowing them to better respond to, mitigate, resolve, and
recover from potential events, incidents, and emergencies.
SAIC has collaborated with DIA to better understand the challenges the airport
faces in events such as a power failure, security-breach, snow removal, or an
aircraft mishap or crash. Deploying this robust software platform, designed
especially for critical infrastructure environments, will dramatically improve
airport domain and situational awareness with three fundamental capabilities:
improved management of the video surveillance system; geospatial referencing
through the integration of the geographical information system; and continuity
through programmed procedures and plans, which are delivered by the business
logic core of the software. Drawing information from these three primary
sources, the airport will be able to constantly update its "common operating
picture" and better manage its activities, staff, and resources.
SAIC has begun Phase I of the project, developing, engineering, implementing,
and integrating the airport's baseline security systems, including the access
control system, video surveillance system, and several other applications. In
future phases, SAIC will implement additional systems, applications, and
technologies, enabling greater capability and functionality within the overall
project resulting in one integrated airport management system.
"At SAIC, we engineer successful and sustainable solutions. We have the
systems integration and program management capabilities to develop and
implement this advanced airport management system seamlessly and maximize
value and impact for DIA," said James R. Moos, SAIC senior vice president and
group general manager.
"DIA's IAMS will be the nation's second system to be implemented at a major
U.S. airport," said Mark Denari, SAIC project manager. "We are very pleased
to be part of such an exciting project that will improve and strengthen DIA's
operations and management through this visionary and mission-oriented system."
