TRUCKEE, Calif., June 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Vector Airport Systems and INDMEX Aviation, suppliers of airport automated aircraft identification, landing fee billing and noise and environmental monitoring systems, are pleased to announce that their VNOMS solution for airport noise monitoring and common operational display has been selected by the Truckee Tahoe Airport District for the Truckee Tahoe Airport after an open and competitive process involving several bidders.
The VNOMS system, co-developed by Vector and INDMEX, is the only system in the industry that leverages the latest surveillance technologies, including FAA NextGen, multilateration and flight plan data, along with Vectors on-field Aircraft Identification System to help airports track and monitor aircraft operations, manage noise complaints and generate complete and accurate aircraft operation reports.
"After an extensive search and competitive procurement process, we are excited to have chosen Vector Airport Systems as our vendor for the Airports' new NOMS solution." said Hardy Bullock, Director of Aviation and Community Services at Truckee Airport. "Over the past ten years, Truckee Airport has implemented the latest in surveillance and operations management tools. Vector's VNOMS will allow the airport to eliminate many of the current data silos and replace them with a truly integrated solution. VNOMS will make it easier for our staff to address situations and improve the accuracy of operations reporting, doing so more efficiently and at a lower operating cost than ever before."
VNOMS integrates the airport's existing multilateration surveillance system, Vector's camera-based Aircraft Identification System, Vector's proprietary aircraft owner database, and other data sources to provide the most accurate common operational picture available to airports today. "We're thrilled that the Truckee Tahoe Airport District selected Vector's VNOMS solution as its NextGen NOMS application." commented Pete Coleton, President of Vector Airport Systems. "Truckee is joining a growing list of airports that are choosing simpler, higher-capability, lower-cost systems that not only improve airport efficiency, but also reinforce the airport's commitment to being a good neighbor."
