Under the AeroBOSS warning system contract, Selex ES will be responsible for supplying hardware and software apart from the integration of RIWS technology for 500 vehicles.

Leonardo stated: “There are nearly 3,100 airports worldwide with commercial air carrier service, but only a small percentage have runway incursion prevention systems. AeroBOSS has been developed for Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs) and airports to improve safety in an efficient and cost-effective manner.

“The RIWS program is expected to become a model for other airports. Selex ES is currently delivering the same world-class level of safety to more than 25 airports worldwide.”
