Title: Multiple Remote Towers - Bane or Boon?

Speaker: Jörn Jakobi

Abstract: Controlling one small airport remotely can offer several advantages, such as reduced maintenance and operational costs. However, to fully utilize the advantages of the remote tower concept, remote tower centers need to be connected to more than one airport. Under which conditions high quality ATC can be provided to more than one airport simultaneously is currently assessed within SESAR 2020. The presentation will show first results of a series of realistic simulation exercises, which showed that “Multiple Remote Tower” is safe and viable concept for the near future.

Title: Information Technology and the Future of ATM Voice Communication

Speaker: Maarten van der Lee, Frequentis

Abstract: ANSPs across the globe are facing challenges of having to support different technologies to be able to provide CNS services to the aviation world. Especially the spread between the support of legacy and the introduction of new technology is driving costs and complexity, and is limiting the speed of introducing new and more efficient technologies to best support aviation growth. By breaking down barriers and opening the technology silos in CNS new benefits are unleashed to the ATM community. Technology independence and information centricity enable the implementation of new operational concepts like the virtual centre and the integrated controller working position.

Speakers: Wenzel Forster & Markus Heichel, Frequentis Comsoft

Surveillance data, e.g. from radars, ADS-B and MLAT coming from multiple local and foreign sources transferred over various networks, arrives at ACCs and airports. The security and integrity of this surveillance data is mission critical for downstream systems and users. In the age of wide area IP networks and increasing security threats, new approaches are necessary to maintain safety and avoid risks for ANSPs, airports, and other civil and military organizations.
