KLIA is Malaysia’s main international airport and one of Southeast Asia’s major
aviation hubs. It is situated in the Sepang district of Selangor, approximately 50
kilometres from the capital city of Kuala Lumpur.
The airport is owned and operated by Malaysia Airports (MAHB). KLIA is ranked
amongst the largest and busiest international airports in Asia.
KLIA ASMS monitors the availability, operations, and usage of the apron equipment
located at each of the 52 passenger gates at KLIA.
Integration between several systems
To integrate the IGSS SCADA system to the Flight Information and Display System
(FIDS) and the airport Management Information System (MIS).
One system for all users
The KLIA Apron Services Management System (ASMS) was conceived by Malaysian
Airport Technologies Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of MAHB, to provide a unified system
for all major users of the airport passenger gates. These include MAHB, the airlines,
aircraft ground crew, maintenance and engineering personnel, and several airport
KLIA ASMS was entirely designed and put in place by a multi-party team lea by
SysWin Controls Sdn Bhd, one of 7-Technologies’ IGSS System Integrator partners in
Malaysia that specializes in airport automation systems.
The ASMS system comprises 3 major components. They are:
- The IGSS SCADA system connected to a network of over 50 units of Omron CJ1
- The Interface Module between IGSS and the airport Flight Information and
Display System (FIDS).
- The Data and Report Distribution Module between IGSS and the airport’s SAPbased
Management Information System (MIS).
The various user groups now have a unified fully-automated PC-based interface to
the apron services. Prior to this project, all equipment usage are monitored and
logged manually with users reporting from each gate in the airport complex.
Accurate, instantaneous, round-the-clock reporting and data availability.
