The Power of Sharing: Operational Benefits of Convergence


Wednesday 20 March

4:00pm - 4:25pm


Frequentis Theatre


Session Overview

Availability of advanced digital technology is driving convergence between airport and tower operations. Using examples from our operational deployment at Hong Kong International Airport, we will highlight the benefits of convergence including:

  • Enhanced situation awareness for ATCOs and airport operators by sharing data between ATC and airport ops
  • Increased time horizon for decision-making, allowing operators to better understand the situation before having to make an operational decision
  • Optimization of the airport capacity and throughput from approach to departure of aircraft
  • Enhanced data richness for apron management enabling advanced automation and alerting to optimize surface movements
