Paris Charles De Gaulle : the airport of the future.
This film is only available on french language.
But it will give you an idea about new technologies used at Paris Airports.
With 66 million passengers a year, Roissy-Charles-de-Gaulle is the first airport on the European continent.
Each day, up to 1,800 aircraft land or take off from its four runways, a record pace every 30 seconds at peak times. A performance that would be impossible without the aid of an ultramodern technology sometimes invisible but always omnipresent on the platform.
Using three-dimensional infographics, Lionel Langlade and Nicolas Brénéol decrypt for the first time the operation of the track markers, which helps the aircraft to land, or that of the onboard navigation system which allows to land or to take off without any visibility.
Discover the sophisticated materials like “push back”, these huge tractors over 50 tons that guide the planes on the taxiway, or the state-of-the-art automated scanners capable of sifting more than 1 200 luggage per minute to detect presence of explosives. Finally, you will understand how Roissy-Charles-De-Gaulle succeeds in welcoming, steering, recording and carrying more than 230,000 passengers a day with the greatest possible fluidity.
