INTRODUTCION

1.1

SAFEDOCK Aircraft Docking Guidance System is a fully automatic aircraft docking guidance system installed at the aircraft parking stands: A6, A7, A8, A9, B10, B11, B12 and B14 of the Bandaranaike International Airport Colombo.

2.

DESCRIPTION OF THE SYSTEM.

2.1

The system uses laser scanning technology and it tracks the aircraft signature and the lateral and longitudinal position of the aircraft. This 3D technique ensures that the pilot is provided with the correct stop indication for the aircraft.

2.2

The necessary information for correct aircraft docking such as azimuth guidance, continuous closing rate information, aircraft type etc is shown on a LED-display pane that is clearly visible for both pilot-in-command and co-pilot.

2.3 

Following figure A shows a rough sketch of the LED Display and laser scanning Unit mounted on the pier building wall in front of each of above parking stands:

 

 

 

3.

DOCKING PROCEDURE.

3.1

The sequence of system operation from the stage of initial approach to the ''STOP''  position is  detailed as follows:

 

Fig.1

 a. The pilot identifies the correct parking bay position.



b. The pilot observes that the scrolling yellow arrows are indicating that the system is activated. (see Fig.1)

       Note : The pilot shall not enter the Parking stand area unless the scrolling yellow    arrows are    displayed.



c. The pilot follows the lead in line and checks that the correct aircraft type is displayed.

        Note : The pilot shall not enter the parking stand area unless the correct aircraft type is displayed.



d. On successful capture of the aircraft, the scrolling yellow arrows are replaced by solid yellow closing rate field. (see Fig.2)

         Note : The pilot shall not proceed to the bridge unless the scrolling arrows have been superseded by the solid yellow closing rate field.



e. The flashing red arrow and solid yellow arrow provide azimuth   guidance information. The flashing red arrow shows which direction to steer while the solid yellow arrow gives an indication how far the aircraft is off the centreline. (see Fig.3)




f. When the aircraft is 12m from the stop position, the system starts displaying closing rate information. ''Distance to go'' is indicated by turning off one row of LEDs for every 0.5m that the aircraft advances towards the stop position. From 9m to the stop position, the yellow digital closing rate countdown will indicate the distance from the stop position for every 1m. At 2m from the stop position, the display will indicate the distance from the stop position for every 0.2m.  (see Fig 3,4 and 5)




 g. The aircraft must be identified by the system at least 12m before the stop position. If this does not occur, the system displays ''STOP'' and then ''WAIT'' with two red rectangular fields being lit in the azimuth guidance area of the display. The system will then  attempt to identify the aircraft. If successful, the docking procedure will continue. If not, ''WAIT'' will be replaced with ''STOP''. (see Fig. 9 and 10)  




h. If the `aircraft is approaching faster than the accepted speed, the system will show ''SLOW DOWN'' as a warning.( see Fig.11).

        Note : The pilot shall approach the parking bay at a speed not exceeding 2m per second for proper operation of the VDGS and safety.




i.. When the correct stop position is reached, all of LEDs for the closing rate field will be off, the word ''STOP'' will appear in the display and two red rectangular fields will light in the azimuth guidance area of the display. (see Fig 6).




j.  If the aircraft stops in the correct position, ''OK'' will be displayed after a few seconds. (see Fig.7)




k. If the aircraft has gone past the correct stop position, the display will show ''T-FAR'' (too far).(see Fig 8)

Note: To avoid overshooting pilots are advised to approach the stop position at the minimum speed (ref. Note in item h) and observe the closing rate information displayed. Pilots should stop the aircraft immediately when seeing the ''STOP''

 Special Procedure For Push Back And Start-Up

7.1

Aircraft departing KATUNAYAKE / Bandaranaike Intl Airport Colombo shall adhere to the procedure for push back and assignment of flight levels.

7.2

Assignment of flight levels to departing aircraft shall be made on first-come-first served basis. Aircraft normally will be, assigned the level requested unless an alternative level is offered after coordination with the adjacent ATC centres.

7.3

Pilots shall use the correct phraseology as specified in para 7.4 when requesting clearance to push back in order to avoid confusion.

7.4

When an aircraft is ready to push back and start within Five (5) minutes, the Pilot shall notify ATC using the following phraseology.

-       Call sign 

-       Destination

-       Proposed flight level (in the flight plan) and alternate if any

-       Parked position

-       POB

-       '' Ready to push back and start in five minutes ''

7.5

On receipt of the '' ready to push back and start'' call, ATC will advise the pilot of any delay and reason, and after the pre-departure co-ordination with adjacent units or centres, the ATC clearance will be issued. An alternate flight level may be given by ATC if the flight-planned level cannot be assigned.

7.6

Once the ATC clearance is accepted by the pilot; the aircraft must be pushed back within Five (5) minutes. The ATC clearance will be cancelled after five (5) minutes grace period.

7.7

At the end of the push back, the departing aircraft must have all engines started and be ready to taxi immediately, unless otherwise instructed by ATC.

7.8

An ATC clearance once issued to a departing aircraft as per para 7.5 may be cancelled under the following circumstances:
