About the client

When Aerostar took over management of the Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport in San Juan, Puerto Rico, they set out to modernize every aspect of the airport's operations. As part of their ambitious upgrade, they turned their attention to the airport control center, recognizing the importance of having state-of-the-art consoles that could improve the efficiency and safety of air traffic management. Aerostar, which has a forty-year lease to operate and manage the airport, worked closely with Sustema to design and install high-tech, durable, and ergonomic consoles that could meet the unique demands of the airport's bustling environment. In this blog post, we'll explore how these consoles have transformed the airport's control center and helped to ensure that SJU remains a vital hub for both passengers and cargo throughout the region.

The project

When we were approached by the Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport in San Juan, Puerto Rico to design a state-of-the-art console system for their airport control center, we were excited by the opportunity to showcase our expertise in specialized furniture manufacturing. The project had specific requirements, including the need to accommodate between 6 and 8 workstations, including supervisors and dispatchers, each with support for a minimum of four 22-inch monitors and enclosures for CPUs. Additionally, the raised floors of the control room had to be considered in our floor layout design.

The solution

Through an in-depth and collaborative consultation process, we worked closely with Aerostar to identify the scope of the project, the required console features, and the budget. After carefully considering all of their needs and preferences, Aerostar chose our Transit S console as the ideal solution for their airport control center. Designed with durability, ergonomics, and versatility in mind, the Transit S console met all of Aerostar's requirements and exceeded their expectations, ensuring a seamless and efficient operation of the airport's control center.

The result

Aerostar chose our consoles for their airport control center because they met all of their technical requirements and selection criteria, which included quality, durability, efficiency, and functionality. Today, the Luiz Muñoz Marin International Airport in San Juan, Puerto Rico boasts a state-of-the-art airport control center that runs non-stop, thanks to our Transit S console system. Our consoles offer numerous ergonomic features that help reduce stress and fatigue for operators, such as the ability to adjust the height of each worksurface and the urethane edging that allows for comfortable use during long work hours. Not only have these features improved operator health and well-being, but they have also increased workflow and productivity. Overall, our Transit S console system has exceeded Aerostar's expectations and has contributed significantly to the successful modernization of its airport control center.
