Airport land service

For a long time TETRA radios have been at the core of airport communication. They were able to supply instant voice communication and different frequency allowed to have conversation divided by channels/departments. 

However, in recent years there has been an increased demand of data and a shift to a more comprehensive way of communication, that not only includes audio, but video and data have become a essential requirement. 

As a result, two way radios limited functions have become obsolete. 


Main issues that have been faced are the Inability to promptly report about damages to aircraft/baggage/cargo, offloaded oversized cabin bags, last minute bags, etc., and equipment breakdowns.

Another problem was also the Inability to assign new flight handling duties effectively, and deal with re-deployments efficiently arising from flight changes.

On the other hand, the shift to LTE hasn’t been easy, due to Ordinary mobile phone repair rate being too high and delaying the daily work.


RugGear 4G and 5G devices provide a new solution that allows to instantly capture and broadcast to control rooms and other relevant parties annotated picture and video of incidents detected at aircraft side.

The large PTT button makes instant communication, in the style of TETRA radios, easy to achieve. 

Thanks to the location monitoring service allow control room supervisors to have full visibility of their workforce from the comfort of their desks while actioning requests faster. 


Some of the benefits that can be introduced with the use or RugGear LTE devices are:

  • Prompt & accurate reporting
  • Increase productivity
  • Reduced hardware load (no need to take many devices, such as mobile phone, tablet, walkie talkie)
  • Staff monitoring
  • Task assignment
  • Rugged and durable


RugGear and Airports

RugGear devices have been successfully deployed in several airports around the world, making instant communication easier and work more efficient. 

Devices such as RG725, are equipped with DRX power saving technology, to last without problems during long work shifts and a high-resolution camera, to share feedback from the floor and receive faster instructions to solve problems in a more timely manner.

Our devices rugged credentials make them durable as they don't break easily. Being NFC enabled makes them useful because they allow to clock in or out of each task.

If you would like to hear more about our devices, get in touch and one of our representatives will be happy to assist you.
