Advanced Remote Tower- ART

Objective

The ART proposal will study the concept of remotely operated ATC units and supporting technologies in order to enhance regularity during low visibility operations and to substantially decrease the ATC related costs at airports. The purpose is to explore the concept of remotely operated towers and to test and validate additional sensors that will enhance the air traffic controllers' situational awareness at reduced visibility conditions due to weather and darkness.

Promising new technologies as well as technologies of today, applied and presented in an innovative and more efficient manner, will be explored. The enhanced situational awareness is one of the main prerequisites for enhanced regularity at the aerodrome, which has proven to be one of the bottlenecks in today's ATM system. A cost benefit analysis regarding remotely operated towers performed by The LFV Group shows substantial economical benefits compared to traditional ATC operations at airports.
