The Entries

The winners have been presented with the Innovation Award during the opening ceremony at inter airport Europe in Munich, Germany.

Dynell GmbH

Dynell introduced a new benchmark for green ground power units with an innovative 400Hz solid-state concept. The 90kVA unit is realized in 8 identical inverter modules (9kg only) working redundant and efficiency values of up to 96% besides other advantages such as modularity, reliability, and best voltage quality values with lowest mains distortion what was never seen on an electrical GPU.

Sieza s.r.o.

Sieza constantly responds to the current needs of its customers and innovates its products in the field of fence detection systems. They have created a unique product that is ready for applications in explosive environments. Peridect+ Ex is currently the only system on the market that can be installed in hazardous environments and has an extremely low number of nuisance alarms.

Smiths Detection

The UVC light tray disinfection kits have been designed to automatically kill bacteria and viruses on trays as they’re being transported from reclaim back to the divest station, protecting passengers and staff from tactile transmission of contagious disease, without affecting the overall speed of the TRS or the operational efficiency.


Limited BHS staff? Passengers are traveling again but with reduced staff in the aftermath of COVID, airports are concerned about how to cope if they encounter problems. Data analytics provide cloud-based interfaces for data dashboards - visible for both the airport and for BEUMER Group's Hotline service where data is analysed for securing the system performance to relieve the complexity of the situation in the control room.


Flyinstinct provides a digital inspection platform to reinforce runway FOD detection. Detecting objects as small as 2cm thanks to the most advanced computer vision and AI technologies, the FODLocator is a mobile plug-and-play system that increases flight operations safety and benefits all airport stakeholders for predictive maintenance and data valorisation.


MIA System: the ALCMS of the future based on a PC logic and available on portable devices for maintenance operations and remote towers. Upgrade and Update by remote, notably during rehab interventions. Tailored from the layout up to the alarm management and the integration of other systems. Redundant responsiveness beyond EASA regulations: alarm notice in 0.7 secs. Training simulating the real airfield.

Moventor Oy

Moventor have designed and developed the GRR software for reporting runway surface conditions according to ICAO GRF new regulations. They have made a user-friendly software and involved end-users to design the user interface. At the same time, it is very technical and includes automation which helps the customers with the transition to GRF.

Smiths Detection

The iCMORE family of smart and adaptable algorithms for the automatic detection of an ever-expanding list of dangerous, prohibited and contraband goods and substances (handguns, lithium-batteries, etc) provides accurate, reliable and powerful detection capability, helping to reduce the burden on image analysts and improve detection performance and therefore increase security.


Dedienne Aerospace have designed and qualified a suite of modular fixtures & dolly, which can be fitted onto Unit Load Device Container AAP (LD9), without any modification of the ULD, thus protecting the type certificate of the ULD. 

The dolly allows quick and easy loading/ unloading of your equipment (max gross weight 3,307lbs) onto/ from the ULD, while improving H&S for ramp/ on-wing operator. 

The design-thinking of the GSE with a major engine MRO has enabled to develop standard, safe and robust fitting interface to fasten your heavy equipment.


Intelligent Power Management is a complete gate system that allows airports to utilize their gate power infrastructure smarter. Often, there is a large excess capacity waiting to be exploited! IPM allows customers to upgrade existing gates with more power or air capacity without major investments, or design cheaper and less complicated new installations.

Moventor Oy

Moventor manufactured a new version of Continuous Friction Measuring Equipment (CFME). This project was focused on technical solutions for installing the CFME to the pickup vehicles (all-in-one package). The outcome responded perfectly to the airports’ needs. The possibility of using electric vehicles will bring advantages for airports in the future.

Musco Lighting

Musco's TLC for LED® technology offers enhanced light quality, improved effectiveness, reduced spill light and glare, lower energy consumption, and minimized environmental impacts. Our innovative LED systems have ushered in a new era for apron lighting and offer a solution complete from foundation to pole top.


OROK provide a unique and patented solution for baggage and cargo handing automation airside. Composed of a fleet of autonomous vehicle, automatic unit-load transfer stations and a supervision server, we bring more profitability (-50% OPEX), reduce accidents and injuries, improve logistics flows, and improve environmental impact (-50% on LCA).


Purivox GmbH

Integration of Purivox bird control gas cannons with bird radar from Robin radar. Bird Control personnel can activate the dispersal systems through the top-view map interface while monitoring the flee behavior of the birds. Activation events and resulting bird behavior can be analyzed for long-term effectiveness.


VISTA – complete system for non-instrument, non-precision approach runways.  

The system includes all required LED lights for marking and guidance, powered and controlled in 1.4ADC constant current. The controller can switch the circuits ON/OFF, change brightness & check failures. Remote control is available using external console, PC, smartphone or pilot-activated light.

Snocom BV

SNOCOM exploits the compressibility of snow to reduce the volume. This equates into tremendous savings for both the environment and operational costs. Snowcuber leads the way in technology and the future of snow removal; with reduced emissions, equipment movements, fuel consumption and costs for a cleaner, more efficient future.
