Are We on the Eve of Multi-Remote Air Traffic Controlling?
The aviation industry has already seen the “single remote tower setting,” in which one air traffic controller provides services remotely to one airport, employed with success, but the advancements in remote tower operations have been rapid. Encouraging results are now being reported on tests of multiple tower operations.
The data seems to be unmistakable – it is possible for a single air traffic controller to safely provide services remotely to three airports simultaneously. Although the multi-remote concept needs more research and development, the simulations have been well-received by air traffic controllers. The hope is to bring remote controlling technology to the next level by 2020. Research has shown that the most significant economic savings offered by remote controlling happen with the multi-remote model, so developers are eager to move forward as quickly as possible with this exciting new technology.
