NEXTT webinar

This on-demand webinar covers a wide array of topics, drawing on the vast spectrum of aspects included in the NEXTT vision. The NEXTT vision allows us to challenge the ways in which the industry operates today and create a new framework to meet the demands of tomorrow.

Every airport’s and airline’s operations reflect the environment and constraints that they face, and each will have different priorities. The NEXTT team compared the differing priorities and challenges a similar project faces when deployed in different locations.

The NEXTT team also discussed case-study examples of trials and proof of concepts that have been conducted to progress the NEXTT vision from strategy to business as usual.

Key Learning Points

Industry experts presented case studies which include three very different topics:

  • A look at next generation ramp operations or “Smart Stand”
  • Facial recognition for identity management
  •  Landside access, parking and traffic management.

The team showcased trials on passenger biometrics, aircraft-stand automation and landside access.

This on-demand webinar will provide insights into the role that standards play to deliver scalable and interoperable solutions.
