SARA kick-off at Cagliari International Airport


SARA environmental monitoring system kicks off at Mario Mameli International Airport, Cagliari Elmas managed by Sogaer S.p.A.

The integrated environmental monitoring system, covering noise pollution and air quality, comes second in Italy only after the system provided by Softech to SAC S.p.A. for Catania Fontanarossa International Airport, in 2015.

The system’s environmental value, besides its intrinsic mission, relies on its making use of noise monitoring stations that are powered by photovoltaic renewable energy, thus minimising the environmental impact of the project.

The Cagliari installation compromises two main components:


Noise monitoring

– N. 5 Softech SARA_MM Postazione fotovoltaica measuring stations (4 fixed, one mobile), equipped with a SOFTECH THOR  analyser and a GRAS41AM external microphone, both ISO 20906, IEC 61672 standard compliant.
Three fixed stations are powered by  photovoltaic energy, generated by integrated solar panels. All stations are connected to SARA‘s central system on a 3G network, These construction characteristics provided for a drastic reduction in times and costs for installation and deployment, minimising the amount of civil works required in situ.
One of the measurement stations features a VAISALA WXT330 multi-parameter meteorologogic station, able to acquire information on temperature, relative humidity, atmospheric pressure, wind speed and direction and rainfall amount.

SARA ADS-B device, for a real time collection of position data on aircraft in transit, designed and implemented by Softech as an alternative to the radar tracking systems, typically provided by governement authorities.

SARA software to manage noise, radar tracks, meteorologic and flight planning data, in order to calculate the groungd impact ground impact of aereonautical noise events.


Environmental monitoring

– An air quality measuring statiomonitoraggio aria aeroporto Mameli2n has been installed within the airport’s territory, This is a fixed station, assigned to monitoring the main pollutants in coninuous , in order to determinate their concentration based on airport flight traffic. This station features equipment by Softech’s partner company, ENVIRONNEMENT ITALIA S.p.A. for the following pollutants: SO2, NO/NO2/NOx, CO, CO2, O3, PM10, BTX and HTC.

SARA software for monitoring in continuous periodical reports and correlation of pollutant concentration, as detected with the airport’s flight traffic.






This SARA software installation is unique, and was configured to manage both noise and environmental events.

Softech will supply SOGAER S.p.A. with all maintenance services, as well as analysis and reporting of the data recorded by the system, covering both noise and air quality status.
