BCS North America secures first controls project in Hawaii

BCSNA has been awarded the BHS High level controls and information systems contract for the Kahului Airport in Maui. BCSNA are working as a lead subcontractor to the Horsley Company, members of the 5 Star Alliance Group.

BCSNA was selected given its international reputation as a specialist in the field of airport baggage handling systems - particularly in the high risk area of design, development and implementation of sortation high level controls and information systems that interface between the conveyor control systems and the airport and airline information systems.

BCSNA will engineer and manage the project from its offices in San Jose, California.

A key component of the BCSNA engineering approach will be to use the BCS "Virtual Airport" product to test systems before site commissioning. Prior to the system 'going live', BCSNA will simulate potential system failures and test actual site software and hardware as an integrated package. This is achieved by emulating the actual conveyor system while incorporating 'real time' Airport flight and passenger data.

BCSNA will assist the Horsley Company in interfacing where necessary with the State Airport Authorities the General Contractor, resident airline personnel, and BNP Associates the BHS Consultancy for the project.

The project is due for completion in late 2009.
