Special INSIGHT Report: TOWERS OF STRENGTH

How remote and digital towers herald the way ahead for air traffic management.

This week’s ispecial INSIGHT report looks at a growing digital future for the world of air traffic management.

During the recent pandemic there were stories of airport control towers having to close, due to a single infection. But Austrian company Frequentis says that using remote towers with full digital support gives flexibility and resilience to the air navigation service networks.
 

In the Middle East, Frequentis has been demonstrating how the digital remote tower can help with smaller airports with only occasional air traffic and conversely how they can help when there are exceptional demands during peak events such as pilgrimages or major sporting events such as a World Cup.
 
Josef Kutschi, managing director Middle East, and Peter Gridling, global expert in digital towers and air traffic management talk to Alan Peaford about the technology and the future and how the coronavirus pandemic could have paved the way for a step change in airspace operations.
