Amorph Systems and VANTIQ Develop New Application To Help Airports Mitigate Operational Impact of COVID-19

STUTTGART, Germany and SAN FRANCISCO — April 8, 2020 — Amorph Systems and VANTIQ today announced a strategic partnership to create a new application that will help airports worldwide address real-time operational requirements during the COVID-19 outbreak.

The new application combines thermal cameras, flight information, passenger flows and real-time communication to instantly detect passengers with high temperatures and alert airport operations control to identify potential contaminated areas. The system also allows airport managers to quickly re-direct passenger flows, re-position flights and re-allocate staff due to closed areas.

The application is based on the existing AMORPH.aero system, which is used by dozens of airports globally to plan, forecast and manage passenger flows and airport resources. The application was built in just 2 weeks using VANTIQ’s agile development platform, which combines real-world data and real-time events to power the next generation of applications using a broad array of sensors, edge devices and artificial intelligence.

“Airports are under incredible pressure right now, as they address exceptional operational issues caused by COVID-19,” said Dr. Frank Frauenhoffer, managing director of Amorph Systems. “Our new application will be highly valuable not only to manage the current situation, but to prepare for future waves of COVID-19 or other potential virus outbreaks of other viruses. In order to keep passengers safe, airports need to apply new real-time health measures.”

“We’re proud to work with Amorph on this important new application for airports around the world,” said Marty Sprinzen, co-founder and CEO of VANTIQ. “It’s amazing to see how people are stepping up to innovate in this pandemic, and we look forward to helping Amorph with other industrial applications. There will undoubtedly be many changes in how the world operates in both the short and long term.”
