Frequentis demos remote tower tech at Airport Show

Posted 23 May 2019 · Add Comment

At the recently held annual Airport Show, comms and information solutions provider Frequentis - which earlier this month announced it will be opening a new office in Abu Dhabi - demonstrated its innovative remote tower solution, drone detection and safety-critical, resilient networks.

The company showed delegates how the use of this type of system would be utilised to actively control commercial aircraft movements at airports in the region and worldwide.

The business case for remote tower technology is compelling, potentially avoiding the need or expense of a conventional control tower and offering enhanced visibility and safety features, as well as cost savings. Through the use of high definition cameras, augmented reality and safety nets, ANSPs can optimise processes, increase security standards and make more efficient use of resources.



This week, Frequentis gained approval for the use of its remote tower solution at Jersey Airport in the Channel Islands. The Frequentis solution was designed to safely manage air traffic for Jersey Airport from a contingency operations centre, providing seamless Air Traffic Control (ATC) services should the air traffic control tower be unavailable for any reason.

"To have worked on this significant project on the British Isles is a great milestone, setting the pace for future UK projects. Remote tower technology is helping ANSPs and airport operators to enhance operations. Together with SIL we have ensured that Ports of Jersey meets its goal for streamlined air traffic services", commented Hannu Juurakko, Vice President ATM at Frequentis.
