TRACKED TRANSIT SYSTEM (TTS)
Aerotrain is a complimentary automated people-mover shuttle system (ADtranz CX-100) that shuttles passengers between Main Terminal Building and Satellite Building. It offers the best combination of short journey time, simplicity and fail-safe operation, and resistance against breakdown. The system runs on pneumatic rubber-typed wheels to provide confort.
The Tracked Transit System (TTS) connects two stations, one in the node at the centre of the Contact Pier's Internationl Level and one close to the centre of the Satellite building's Departure/Arrival level. The TTS provides transportation for airline passengers over an elevated guideway (1286m or 4219ft) and under the taxiways between the MTB and the Satellite Building.
The Aerotrain operates at three to five minutes intervals for the pier-satellite service. Round trip time takes 5 min 5 sec with the maximum speed being 56km/h (35mp/h).
With two 2-car trains (250-passenger capacity) at opening Phase-I, the system will have the capacity to handle 3870 passenger/hour per direction. Phase-II calls for two 3-car trains (6 in total) capable of handling 5805 passenger/hour per direction. Each car-train has a maximum capacity of 83 passengers. The power supply uses a 3-phase 600 V at 50Hz and the propulsion system uses a 100hp DC Electric Motor.
Automatic train control (ATC) manages the operation of the entire system, controlling vehicle speeds, headways, stops and door openings in stations, and integrating all functions to enhance reliability and performance of the systems.
TOTAL AIRPORT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (TAMS)
K.L. International Airport will be equipped with a sophisticated computerised system called TAMS. TAMS applies advanced Information Technology (IT) concepts and equipment to help make KLIA a primary international transportation hub for South-east Asia. TAMS is a state-of-the-art technology, designed with a high level of sophistication.
This system interfaces and integrates the majority of electronic information within the airport, assuring maximum flow of information for operations and management, and providing unprecedented levels of service, safety and comfort to the travelling public. This, in turn, will help bring more tourists and business to Malaysia.
This integration also supports the business goals of providing an efficient, cost effective operation of KLIA. As both a primary node on the Multimedia Super Corridor and as the precursor to the next generation of airports in Malaysia, KLIA will demonstrate advanced airport technologies and be a model for future IT enterprise solutions for Malaysia and the world.
- Centralised databases that expedite information sharing among various airport systems.
- Centralised Management Information System for management of airport human, physical, financial and information assets.
- Centralised Airport operation centres that co-ordinate and expedite airport functions during normal and emergency situations.
- These systems are all connected by a network infrastructure of fiber optics and copper-based telecommunications backbone used by all airport voice, data, and video users. However, each can operate independently in the event of a central control system failure.
- The integration of these primary groups of sub-systems at KLIA brings a new level of functionality and service to international airports and will be the catalyst that will ensure KLIA as a major hub in this region.
There are seventeen sub-systems in TAMS, including the Flight Information Display System, Gate Allocation System, Runway/Taxiway Lighting Control System, Passenger Check-In System, Baggage Handling System, Automated Warehouse System, Facility Management System, Building Management System, Closed Circuit Television, Meteorological System, Air Traffic Management System, Apron Services Management System, Noise Monitoring System, PABX System, Point of Sale System, Card Access System, and Trunked Radio System.
TAMS will provide a proving ground for electronic
commerce for other similar enterprises. The Crisis Control Centre (CCC) at KLIA may be
expanded to manage national crisis. Or as a minimum, KLIA's CCC will be proving ground for
crisis management concepts. Intelligent airport systems will come on line as technologies
The Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC) covers an area of 15 x 50km, encompassing Kuala Lumpur City Centre, Putrajaya, Cyberjaya and KLIA Sepang. The MSC will be developed to serve the regional and world markets for multimedia products and services by inviting world-class multimedia corporations to locate their business units and research and development facilities in this area.
The MSC will have:
1. World-class physical and information infrastructure
2. Fast access to the country's transportation facilities
3. Global megabit fibre-optic telecommunications links
As a major component of the MSC, TAMS megabit fibre-optic network and information infrastructure is designed to provide a platform that will allow for easy integration and link to the other components of the MSC.
