Wednesday 8 March

Session Overview

What started out as a solution to make small and regional airports more viable, has now transitioned into a family of remote tower solutions that are blending a range of technologies, including augmented reality. This session and accompanying tour will present the latest SESAR remote tower innovations. It will also look at the virtual centres, a solution aimed at decoupling data services from physical air traffic service units (ATSUs).
