Since its foundation in 1982, EBCO has successfully developed and implemented engineering solutions for several complex infrastructure projects.
As a solution provider, EBCO has been operating through strategic partnerships with several first class suppliers and components manufacturers around the world. The company has been driven by its vision to develop technical solutions which pair cutting edge technology with operational concepts designed to best fulfill customer requirements and objectives.
We are also able to provide the installation, support the guarantee period, preventive and corrective maintenance through our own technical assistance group.
Bellow we are listing the main systems, which EBCO is able to carry on.
Airfield lighting systems
The airfield lighting systems are vital part of flight security and protection, as in spite of the presence of other non-visual instruments for aircraft navigation, every pilot relies on the airport runway lighting, either for approaching, landing, taking-off and taxing for access to runways and terminals.
As the weather and operating conditions of each aerodrome define several categories of operation, the configuration, complexity and performance of each system are case-by-case specific.
Tower & Obstruction Lighting
Installation of tower and obstruction lighting is vital to the correct and timely identification of obstacles, such as telecommunication towers and buildings. These systems ensure the security of obstacles, aircrafts, passengers and crew during flight.
Visual docking guidance system
This system is used to provide accurate closing rate and stopping guidance in the aircraft’s docking at airports. Such systems are interconnected to other airport systems, facilitating the flow of information and control of the gate.
Supervision, control and management system
The management system comprises a set of hardware and software functions which manage the operation of airport installations and integrate airline operations with those of the control tower. It also enables:
Facilities management: issuance of check-in tickets, baggage labeling, flight information, time and date information, access control, terminal temperature control, electric power consumption control, etc.
Data management: generation of reports on passenger flow, number of pieces of luggage, most frequent destinations, types of aircraft used and boarding times, so as to maximize the resources available at the terminal.
Mass Notification System
The Mass Notification System is designed to protect, warn and inform people in case of an emergency (natural disaster, industrial disaster, terrorism, explosion, blackout, crowd control, etc.)
By means of SMS text messages, e-mail notice, automatic dialing system, flash notifications in computers, handhelds and other media devices, the system offers real time information to Emergency and Prompt Response Personnel (security, police, fire department, civil defense, hospitals, medical emergency teams, etc.) and instructions to affected civilians about what to do in response to a threat.
The system may also be used in non-emergency situations for the control of crowds in big events (festivals, inauguration of presidents, games in large stadiums, etc.) through high-power outdoor audio and visual systems.
Airport baggage handling systems
Also known as Baggage Handling System (BHS), it is one of the most complex systems in an airport and one of the most critical to ensure the smooth operations of flight and infrastructure management. Its function is to receive checked baggage/load at the several check-in counters and deliver it to the positions where aircrafts are taxied for boarding and, at the same time, retrieve checked luggage at the aircrafts and deliver it to the several baggage claim carousels.
Such structures are composed of belts, rollers, servomotors and several sensors mounted throughout the designated areas in passenger terminals and interconnect the check-in counters with the respective aircraft positions. Complementary technologies such as scales, X ray scanners, trace detection systems, explosive detectors and other security equipment are then integrated into these structures.
These complex projects are developed in unison with the development of the terminal architecture in order to obtain maximum benefits and efficiency.
