  • SAAB AB invented Remote-Controlled AirTraffic Control Tower

    SAAB AB invented Remote-Controlled Air Traffic control Tower.

    Looks like in near future, some ATC employees will be unemployed.

    When cost-effectiveness puts high demands on airport operations, Saab's Remote Tower concept could be exactly what small and medium-sized airports need in order to be competitive. The concept aims at remotely controlling several airports from a single Remote Tower Centre.

    Reduced costs – with maintained safety and punctuality

    The Remote Tower concept enables a more effective staffing for aerodrome control service and heavily reduces the costs related to refurbishment of control towers.
    Enhanced situational awareness – even in low visibility conditions

    New features such as object tracking and alerting, infra-red vision and image enhancement, are introduced in this new digital environment and will enhance the controller’s situational awareness.
