Demonstration projects

Remote Towers, Shannon and Cork from Dublin

Type: concepts

Countries: Ireland

Domains: TMA


The project seeks to enable the provision of Remote Tower Services at Shannon and Cork, primarily in periods of low traffic intensity, from a remote facility in Dublin. In doing so, the project aims to demonstrate the state of readiness of the SESAR Remote Tower solution for industrialisation and subsequent deployment, as well as the cost and operational efficiency of the solution. The Remote Tower Services will be provided simultaneously or in sequence for both airports during periods of low traffic density. Safety management processes and procedures will be applied to ensure that levels of safety will be equal to those which are provided by the local control towers at both airports. A total of 50 exercises are envisaged for the project.
