QAS to benefit from safer PRM lifts

Tri-Logical Technologies has announced that Quality Airport Services, a subsidiary of Swissport International and Knafaim Israel, is to deploy its BodyGuard Aircraft Damage Prevention System on its ten year old ambulift fleet to prevent damage to aircraft by ground service equipment at Ben Gurion International airport.

QAS provides a wide range of services in the field of ground services at Israeli airports. It recently passed an ISAGO audit in which BodyGuard’s deployment played a crucial role in providing a full No Touch solution for its fleet. By preventing GSE touches, accidents and accurately reporting near miss incidents, the system strengthens safety protocols and enhances operational efficiency.

BodyGuard can be retrofitted older GSE to bring it into the digital age. By adding years of life to their usage while also negating the need for fleet managers to invest in new, expensive equipment, the system is an ideal solution to meet ISAGO and IATA standards. Deployable on all GSE models and makes, the system’s advanced sensors and telemetry safely co-ordinate a GSE’s approach to an aircraft. With slow down speed control, stop procedures and visual and audible alerts as extra tools to ensure a safe approach, the system automatically reports accidents and near incidents, thus eliminating unreported issues to operation headquarters and safety officers.

According to Moshe Glam, GSE Manager at QAS: “After deploying BodyGuard, QAS’ GSE fleet now meets new No Touch standards. BodyGuard’s implementation shows we are ready for the future by providing safer services to our customers and becomes advantageous as a selling point to potential clients seeking safer and smarter GSE partners. Tri-Logical has created a system that proves itself economically and operationally.”
