A-SMGCS is a modular system defined in the ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) Manual on Advanced Surface Movement Guidance and Control System (A-SMGCS) .One of A-SMGCS goals is to provide enhanced safety and protection of the runway. This paper presents a novel runway incursion detection approach for A-SMGCS, in which a multiple protected area is proposed to decrease complexity of pre-treatment for incursion judgment, and a flight status machine is designed to specify the transitions of one flight from one target status to another. Additionally, an HMI (Human Machine Interface) independently developed by the Second Research Institute of CAAC (Civil Aviation Administration of China) was designed in order to validate the runway incursion detection approach, the result shows that the algorithm has the potential to significantly improve runway safety by early detection and alerting of runway incursions.
Key words: runway incursion / multiple protected area / flight status machine / A-SMGCS / ICAO
