The modernisation of air traffic management is one of the main challenges of current aeronautics research. The Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR) project defines, develops and deploys what is needed to increase ATM performance and build Europe’s intelligent air transport system.
Part of SESAR are the projects PJ05 “Remote Tower for Multiple Airports” and PJ05-W2 “Digital Technologies for Tower”, which focus on the safe and efficient airport of the future. By bringing the concept of remotely controlling multiple airports as well as HMI interaction modes for airport towers to higher maturity levels, the SESAR projects aim at providing small and medium sized airports with more cost-efficient and service tailored air traffic services.
The current programme is SESAR 2020 supports projects to deliver solutions in four key areas, namely airport operations, network operations, air traffic services and technology enablers. It is running from 2016 to 2024 with a budget of 1.6 billion Euro.
In the last five years the EUROCAE Working Group 100 “Remote & VirtualTower” developed the “Minimum Aviation System Performance Standard for Remote Tower Optical Systems” document (ED-240B). The EUROCAE Council has approved the... READ MORE
