Palembang Airport Development, Indonesia.
Ambidji was engaged by the Hazama Corporation of Japan as its engineering and operations project management authority for the delivery of all airfield, air navigation, meteorological and air traffic control (ATC) facilities and systems relating to the redevelopment of Palembang International Airport. Ambidji’s design and project management activities included:
- The design, planning, decommissioning and reinstallation of all radio navigation aids;
- The design and specification of all ATS facilities (control tower and approach control room) and associated voice and data equipment;
- The design and specification and testing of all airfield meteorological systems;
- Procurement of all radio, navigation, meteorological and air traffic control equipment for the new airport;
- Training of staff on new systems and equipment;
- Design and testing of all instrument flight procedures at the airport; and
- Commissioning testing of all equipment and systems.
Incheon International Airport
Ambidji was commissioned by the airport operator to undertake testing of systems and processes to ensure operational readiness at the completion of construction.
Hong Kong (Chep Lap Kok) International Airport – Various Projects
Terminal Doppler Weather Radar
Between 1993 and 1997 Ambidji was engaged by the Hong Kong Airport Authority to implement a Terminal Doppler Weather Radar at Hong Kong’s new airport at Chek Lap Kok.
- The system was the first of its kind in the world outside the USA.
Our team managed all aspects of the project including, definition of user requirements, formulation of system technical specifications for tendering and final contract, site selection and design, tender assessment, contract supervision and administration for the installation of the radar system. This radar’s primary purpose was to detect and warn of the presence and severity of microburst and wind shear activity on the approaches to the airport, to enhance the wind-shear avoidance system at the airport.
Following commissioning of the TDWR, Ambidji designed a maintenance concept for the radar system, and oversaw the early implementation of the maintenance regime.
Airfield Lighting Analysis
Over 1999 and 2000, Ambidji was commissioned by the Airport Authority to undertake an analysis of the Airfield Ground Lighting System. Ambidji assisted the Airport Authority in generating a useful knowledge base of the Airfield Ground Lighting System, to ensure the ‘as – built’ design was well understood in respect of prospective system failures that may cause reduction in the required mission performance levels ranging from minor degradation through to catastrophic failure.
Ambidji’s analysis was based upon the principles of MIL-STD-1629A (Military Standard Procedure for performing a Failure Mode, Effects and Criticality Analysis).
