In cold weather conditions, airplanes need to be de-iced before taking off. Due to environmental regulations, chemical liquids which are both dispensed and collected need to be accounted for. Multiple airport handler companies use this application to request a de-icing; the quantity of dispensed chemicals simply needs to be filled in when de-icing is complete.
De-icing will begin after the airside officer notes and approves the request. All data will be available for management reports. This allows handlers to obtain customized reports on the quantity of each liquid used. This data can be used by the airport to ensure more effective clean-up of chemicals and preservation of clean surface water.
The airport officer should not only be able to approve requests at a desk, but also when driving airside. We have therefore developed a mobile application for iPads which can be mounted in several vehicles.
This will allow the airport officer to control the requests just like on a desktop computer, but with a special interface, making full use of the touch screen.
