Leading Airfield Technology

  • In 2013, DEN deployed the state-of-the-art Saab Sensis Aerobahn Surface Management System that provides airport operations managers with real-time information about aircraft deicing operations
  • DEN also has one of the most comprehensive deicing fluid collection and recycling systems in the world, with an average collection rate of 70 percent of all fluid applied to aircraft in a typical winter season
  • By capturing and recycling deicing fluid, DEN saves approximately $2 million per year compared to the cost of processing the fluid as wastewater
  • In 2015, the airport installed a new network of advanced sensors in runway 17L/35R
    • At 12,000 feet long and 150 feet wide, runway 17L-35R is one of DEN's four north-south runways and is located on the east airfield
    • The advanced sensor system builds upon an existing network of pavement sensors and will allow DEN to monitor the concentration of chemical deicing agents applied during winter storms to better calculate and manage the freezing point of the surface and the amount of deicing material needed
