Project Description

This RDV model shows a planned expansion at Ben Gurion International Airport (BGN) in Tel Aviv – courtesy Israel Airports Authority.

Limited runway capacity and noise concerns at the airport prompted the airport authority to re-design its runway system. One major step required to alleviate the capacity would be to lengthen one of the runways, allowing it to be used North-South as the main approach runway.

Expansion was limited by available land adjacent to the airport, and creation of the new taxiways created a particularly complex airfield configuration. The RDV model allowed the planning team to simulate and test the planned configuration on pilots and controllers to measure how they dealt with the increased complexity. Improvements could then be made and retested.

This airport 3D visualization model simulated turning lights on and off to reflect the proposed configuration and an interface was developed based on the actual electrical plans, simulating each of the electrical circuits involved in the system.

Controllers and pilots made run-throughs of the simulation with several different aircraft types, using different approaches and runway exits, and in diverse weather and visual conditions to understand how the planned system would perform from their perspective.

About RDV Systems

Since 2005, RDV Systems has been delivering innovative visualization and BIM software products. Consultants and public agencies around the world rely on RDV Systems’ solutions to visualize, analyze and communicate their designs for thr road safety audit meaning.

Traditionally, in the design and conceptualization of infrastructure, the processes of visualization and safety analysis have been both time-consuming and cumbersome as well as inconvenient, driven by outdated tools. The team of experts at RDV Systems believe that elegant and forward thinking solutions are possible. Our tools allow for a combination of speed of development and cost-efficacy while maintaining a high level of quality. Our motto, “Publish, Don’t Render.” pushes the boundaries of innovation in the field of 3D model design and analysis while drastically reducing delivery times, and ultimately increases the ROI for our clients.

  • MISSION: To lead the industry with a streamlined 3D real-time, visual communication solution.
  • VISION: To provide a globally cost-effective tool for project visualization and road safety that dramatically expands cooperation and communication for teams and the public.

With nothing to download or install, our products are accessible on any device. They are accessible through the cloud, and have built-in capabilities for remote collaboration, sharing, and hosting for public involvement. The ‘heavy-lifting’ is done on our end, eliminating the need for advanced processing power on your end. These features open up a world of possibilities for otherwise complicated situations.
