An airport is an architectural and engineering masterpiece. A highly efficient and sustainable hub providing a safe, healthy and comfortable environment for travellers to enjoy. Achieving this requires all systems to operate as a single, efficient ecosystem, dedicated to safely handling record numbers of flights, passengers and baggage, and acting as an intermodal hub. Airports of the future are smart, tailor made and emission free.

Deerns designed the Advanced Surface Movement Guidance Control System (A-SMGCS) as part of the Airport Collaborative Decision-Making system for a newly planned large international airport. This includes a system of green LED lights along the taxiway that show the optimal route for aircraft to arrive at the gate, taking all other aircraft movements into account. The Advanced Visual Docking Guidance System (A-VDGS) doubles up as a display, showing countdown time and milestones for the ground crew, ensuring that everything from connecting the bridge to refuelling is ready to go the moment an aircraft arrives at the gate so that up to 50 million passengers a year will never have to wait long.
