Atlantic County officials will welcome Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) to the U.S. to provide demonstrations of new smart airport equipment and technologies at Atlantic City International Airport, a designated Smart Airport testbed.
In-person demonstrations will be available by appointment, March 30-April 1, to ensure all COVID-19 protocols are met and maintained.
Two pieces of equipment that will be on site have been designed to help detect physiological signs that could help promote safe air travel. IAI’s Tamar system remotely measures physiological signs such as body temperature and heart and respiratory rates with a high level of accuracy. IAI’s Grenada system provides quick and efficient sterilization of frequently touched spaces. Intended use of these products includes airports, casinos, health care facilities, transportation, and entertainment venues.
The ACEA is the leading agency for regional economic development and is coordinating this effort to showcase New Jersey’s commitment to innovation and the opportunities for testing and research at the Aviation Innovation Hub in Atlantic County anchored by the airport, the Federal Aviation Administration’s Technical Center and the National Aviation Research and Technology Park.
