The Project „AeM Speedport" enables sustainable mobility through autonomous maneuvering of aircraft
AeM Speedport will provide autonomous and efficient movement of aircraft after landing and before take off. Intelligent and sustainable solutions with focus on digitalization - combined in one smart eco-system around the gate. Together with top-class partners from the aviation industry, renowned institutes and universities that have been conducting research in the field of aviation for many years, we are developing a highly efficient air traffic management and want to create new environmental standards for airports and sustainable solutions for the airline industry. The main goal of the project is significant optimization in the area of ground operations. I am firmly convinced: Significant and measurable savings potential in aviation today is definitely more likely to be found on the ground than in the air.
In the first phase of the project, aircraft at Paderborn Airport will soon be maneuvered fully autonomously and without engine power from the parking position toward the runway and, after landing, to the gate. This approach leads to improved airport performance for all stakeholders involved - airlines, ground service providers, and air traffic control. This project will turn Paderborn/Lippstadt Airport into an innovative real-life laboratory for cutting-edge technology.
