Remote Tower: A New Approach for Mid-Size Airports

As a result of HungaroControl’s latest innovation, the so called Remote Tower system, Budapest Airport (BUD) will be the first among the world’s medium-capacity airports, where the arrival and departure air traffic control can be independent from airport environment. The rTWR concept at Budapest airport is built on the bidirectional integration of the existing ground surveillance system and an appropriately positioned camera network, aiming to enhance air traffic controllers’ situational awareness and flight safety. The main contributors of the BUD rTWR project are INDRA NAVIA and SeaRidge Technologies.
