Ground damage costs the aviation industry up to $10B annually and is the third most common of all accident classification in aviation.
Aircraft Vehicle Detection (AVoiD) is a patent pending sensor platform for monitoring and reporting of contact and near-contact incidents between Ground Support Equipment (GSE) and stationary aircraft. Available 24/7, this non-intrusive approach works silently in the background providing instant reports with proximity and video evidence. The cloud-based software implementation gives real-time access to reports as well as sending text alerts when safety limits are breached.
“AVoiD is a tool which I have no doubt could be used by station managers daily and across our network”
Damien Alford: Ramp Station Manager: Swissport
“Covering up mistakes can make things worse, AVoiD can demonstrate if the correct procedure was followed”
Thomas Leonard: Ramp Safety Training Coordinator: Ryanair
