Single Remote Tower operations for airports with medium traffic volumes

Release: 2015

Reference: -

Location: Saarbr├╝cken


This solution enables the provision of ATS from a remote location of aerodrome control services or aerodrome flight information services to airports with medium traffic volumes.

Description of the exercises

Shadow mode exercises in Saarbr├╝cken will generate representative traffic scenarios for medium density traffic airports. Scenarios include traffic that is scattered in the visual field forcing the controller to monitor wider areas, and traffic that is close together requiring controllers to clearly distinguish aircraft.   A basic set of functionalities will be assessed, updated and enhanced according to identified needs.

Expected benefits

  • Maintained level of safety and workload
  • Increased cost effectiveness
  • Increased capacity
