  12. 12. Remote Tower Market Segments Product complexity Regional & Local airports Larger airports (Contingency operation) Oil & Gas Airport Movements < 5´ 5´-10´ 10´-20´ 20´-50´ > 50´ AFIS & Small airports
  13. 13. A module that feeds ordinary r-TWR CWP position(s) with all necessary data for 1-N airports 1-M pilot positions r-TWR Training & Simulation
  14. 14. Survival opportunity for smaller airports with low traffic density More efficient and cost effective TWR service • Large scale operation • Difficult to recruit to distant airports • Ability to sequenced control of small airports • Multi airport control • Possible shared use of the APP-resources Increase ATC operation by utilizing the staff in a more cost effective way • Lack of educated or trained people when expanding the operation • Multi airport control – one controller will be able to control up to 3 airports The ability to have 7/24 SAR operation • Flexibility to open up airfields Alternatives to new construction or refurbishment of the tower > 30 customers in queue….. SUMMARY: Driving forces for Remote TWR
