Special vehicles management system IS-GHMS

Ground handling management is a complex process as quantity of dispatcher operations grows like an avalanche when number of flights to be handled increases.

IS-GHMS (Ground Handling Management System) is an interactive system for special vehicles management and aircraft ground handling at the apron.
IS-GHMS system helps to perform the following tasks:

  • To maintain and to manage aircraft servicing technological regulations.
  • To allocate assignments to drivers-operators of special vehicles and to monitor their progress.
  • To track transfer baggage traffic at the apron.
  • To track routes of special vehicles across the apron.
  • To manage list of services of ground handling contract between handler and contractors.

Driver-operator’s work

Every unit of special transport connected to IS-GHMS is equipped with wearable computer which tracks location of vehicles at the apron as well as progress of operations assigned by dispatcher and sends data to the system database via wireless connection.

Special vehicle driver-operators watch current and planned assignments, changes in plans, dispatcher’s messages and current flight schedule online on the screen of their wearable computers. Besides, wearable computer serves as an organizer for special vehicle driver-operator. Driver-operator checks performed operations of technological servicing cycle for specific type of aircraft.

Interactive apron map

On interactive map operator of IS-GHMS system can see apron plan with parked aircraft as well as location of special vehicles, workload of special vehicles, current assignments being performed.

System operators receive operational information on current flights from AODB system and from wearable computers of driver-operators what allows them to see operational situation and allocate assignments for aircraft ground handling and baggage loading and reloading.

IS-GHMS system shows which vehicle units are less loaded, it automatically tracks location and time of driving to and from aircraft as well as it promptly suggests which driver-operator can be recalled from his operation and transferred to handling another aircraft.
