GAF and Lufthansa Systems have intensified their cooperation with regard to the provision of current and very high resolution remote sensing data from various data collection systems.
Lufthansa Systems uses the satellite data for its Lido/AMDB (Airport Mapping Data Base) product. This aeronautical database contains geometrical data as well as detailed information about airports (runways, taxiways, airport buildings, etc.). The data is used in the cockpit of commercial aircraft to display the position of the aircraft at the airport during taxiing. The geo-referenced satellite images from GAF can also be used in the future to generate even more accurate airport data.
The key aspects of the cooperation are:
