Seattle-Tacoma International Airport Upgrades to GateKeeper Systems’ Commercial Vehicle Management Software

NEW SYSTEM DESIGNED TO SCALE AND INTEGRATE WITH OTHER AVI SYSTEMS

MINNEAPOLIS, Dec. 15, 2010GateKeeper Systems, Inc., a leader in commercial vehicle management and parking access control systems, today announced that Seattle-Tacoma International Airport will replace its aging vehicle management software with GateKeeper’s Commercial Vehicle Management (CVM) System.

GateKeeper’s CVM software is part of an RFID-based system that automates many of the manual operational and administrative processes required to provide transportation for passengers arriving and leaving an airport. At Seattle-Tacoma, one of the 20 busiest airports nationwide, the GateKeeper CVM application will meet the current and future needs of the airport. GateKeeper’s software will also be compatible with other automated vehicle identification (AVI) systems in the region, including a local bridge toll system. So the airport could eventually integrate its software with the bridge system, allowing cars to use a single tag for both systems.

“With our CVM Software, the Seattle-Tacoma Airport will benefit from upgraded software, ongoing expert support, and the ability to expand the system to meet future needs,” said GateKeeper Systems President Lynn Richardson.

GateKeeper Systems was selected over other proposals in a competitive process. The installation, will include 7 lanes of RFID equipment that will monitor about 1,500 commercial vehicles.
