The new system will allow air traffic controllers to view every aircraft across all runways and taxiways, as well as automatically identify all suitably equipped vehicles.
Airservices Air Traffic Control executive general manager Jason Harfield said that the $35m A-SMGCS project would provide an electronic picture of what is happening on the ground at any time through the collection of surveillance data from multiple sources.
"This will lead to improved airport safety and reliability by providing air traffic controllers with an enhanced picture of all movements on runways and taxiway areas," Harfield said.
"The new system offers better conflict detection for controllers and a lower risk of surface collisions.
"The new system will allow air traffic controllers to view every aircraft across all runways and taxiways, as well as automatically identify all suitably equipped vehicles." "It also improves the reliability and efficiency of airport operations during bad weather and at night, when distances from our control tower can make visual monitoring more challenging."
The new A-SMGCS also forecasts conflicts between vehicles and aircraft, and multiple aircraft movements, prior to their occurrence.
The system will also offer both visual and audio alerts to air traffic controllers to take early corrective action.
"While this technology does not replace the visual monitoring our controllers conduct, it adds another layer of safety to our operations at Australia's third busiest capital city airport," Harfield said.
Prior to commissioning, the new system underwent extensive system testing and controller training.
