The Advanced Surface Movement, Guidance and Control System (A-SMGCS) was developed by the German Aerospace Center (DLR) Institute of Flight Guidance; it is installed at Braunschweig Wolfsburg Airport. The facility is used to test sensor systems for locating and identifying airport traffic, as well as to assess surface movement management concepts and processes.

Research into surface movement guidance systems

The (A-SMGCS) experimental taxiing traffic monitoring system is used to research new systems to increase safety on the ground and to provide improved and automated support for air traffic controllers. This DLR large-scale facility consists of the infrastructure of the test environment at Braunschweig Wolfsburg Airport, a development environment with a demonstration room and control centre, as well as a reference system in a DLR flight test vehicle and a DLR ground test vehicle.

This facility is part of the Air Traffic Validation Center. This Center provides scientists with the necessary tools to test and evaluate new ideas and technologies for all areas of air traffic management.
