Updates to GSE and Airside Technology That Save Money by Improving Efficiency and Safety

Updating equipment is a difficult decision in any industry. Within the aviation airside support industry, updating, upgrading, or replacing ground support equipment (GSE) to meet environmental and safety standards is a similar conundrum. It’s considered a costly and unfortunately necessary evil, often delayed due to fear of service interruptions. However, advances in GSE technology mean that upgrading or replacing that aircraft tug or lavatory service cart can make it safer and more energy-efficient. These updates are also a great financial opportunity, rather than a burden. Safer, more efficient, and more cost-effective GSE is a win-win-win scenario.


A Smart Oxygen and Nitrogen Service System

Often, it’s the cumulative cost of the small, persistent wastes of time, labor, stock, and other resources that can sabotage a business, rather than big, catastrophic losses. Any way to reduce the time or number of people it takes to perform a task is a sure expense saver. An example is aircraft oxygen and nitrogen service. An outdated or bulky oxygen service cart could take two or more people to handle and load. Updating to a smaller, more efficient model could reduce that workload to one person. Find a cart that’s heavy-duty enough to hitch to your aircraft tugs but portable enough to move by hand. Be sure that any new service cart comes equipped with a booster system. It saves money, improves efficiency, reduces canister fills, and saves time and labor.

A Smart Lavatory Fill System

“Costly GSE-related accidents” is likely to conjure images of aircraft damaged in mishaps involving tow tugs and pushback tractors. That is, until the first lavatory system overfill accident, resulting in thousands of dollars of damage to an aircraft. A high-quality lavatory system should have smart features, like a direct-reading delivery system and tank, which negates the risk of bad or broken flow meters. Retrofitting your lavatory service cart is a modest investment that improves efficiency and prevents expensive, messy accidents.

Aircraft Tug and Pushback Tractor Monitoring Technology

While a lavatory system overfill accident is no joke, damage caused to aircraft during towing can be much more costly, and potentially hazardous. An increasingly popular and successful solution is equipping aircraft tugs with a linear force monitoring system. A good example is the SiPsHitch™ Linear Force Monitoring System from GSE provider AERO Specialties. The SiPsHitch™ system alerts the operator to the risk of overstress during a tow before any damage is done. As it’s a solution for preventing expensive accidents and recording tow stress, it can improve the disposition of insurance companies and customers toward your operations. Another win-win.

A Comprehensive, Sure-Fire FOD Detection Solution

Metal foreign object debris (FOD) costs the aviation industry billions of dollars every year. A comprehensive FOD identification and removal system is key to reducing that damage and the costs associated with it. The key is finding one that employs a millimeter wave radar system allowing it to operate day or night, in any weather. To respond effectively when FOD is identified, opt for a mobile detection system, and ensure that it’s FAA approved.
