Multi-Remote Tower Concept of Operation
The concept of multiple remote towers can further maximize the cost savings realized through the implementation of Remote Tower services. The basic notion of the concept is for a single Air Traffic Control Officer (ATCO) to deliver control services to multiple airports simultaneously from a single working position.
Apart from safely and effectively providing visual surveillance of multiple airports to a single ATCO, the following are some of the biggest challenges that will need to be addressed through technology:
- Managing workload of controllers to ensure minimal stress levels
- Developing a new ATCO workflow, and the role of remote tower technology and integration with ATM systems
- Addressing off nominal events, and dynamics of workload balancing between multiple working positions
- Implementation of video safety nets and situational awareness tools that will increase the efficiency of performing ATCO tasks
Our Unique Value:
