Virtual Block

Operations during Reduced Visibility Procedures (RVP)

Virtual Block can be used to manage the safe and effective flow of aircraft on taxiways, reduce taxiway congestion and, more significantly, do so in conditions of heavy rain and poor visibility, that may otherwise cause the cessation of operations.

Instead of operating one aircraft on a taxiway, to or from the runway, the sensor can “stack” as many aircraft as the taxiway length will permit, thereby increasing the tempo of operations by a factor of 3-5, and save fuel.
