THE FUTURE OF BEING PRESENT

The r-TWR - Remote Tower control solution - is a revolutionary initiative for airport stakeholders and Air Traffic Control. For the first time, there is a real possibility to combine a dynamic use of resources, information sharing and safety enhancement features at a preferred and safe location.

A number of Air Navigation Service Provid- ers (ANSPs) and airports have already recog- nised the potential of r-TWR. With parallel deployment activities worldwide, the Saab r-TWR product is consolidated as unique market leader.

Saab is very proud to be the prime r-TWR concept developer. Having cooperated closely with all stakeholders, the product has a high

degree of standardisation and usability. Vital parameters such as cost-effectiveness and safety are guaranteed.

Many positive effects from a new arena

The Saab r-TWR can be presented and adapted in many forms and is the ideal solution when seeking a primary ATC location for airport and approach operations.

In key performance areas such as safety, cost reduction, and interoperability, r-TWR represents the perfect solution for:

Replacement of outdated TWR facilities

Provision of TWR services at new airports

Merging two or more existing ATC sites into one

Contingency plan to guarantee continuity of ATC service provision

The cost-saving potential of not needing to build a new TWR facility is immense.

r-TWR enables an ATC facility to be activated on demand, thereby guaranteeing continuity of airport operations at maximum cost efficiency. The r-TWR platform is fully scal- able, permitting operational views of up to 360 degrees.

The Information sharing process, vital for the modern airport CDM (Collaborative Decision Making) initiative, is also maintained through system

Enhanced safety opportunities

Several small ATC facilities can be merged in the r-TWR to form a centre, allowing small and isolated ATC units to benefit from technology sharing and support capability.

In the r-TWR centre, all safety-enhancing technologies, such as runway incursion monitoring and low-visibility op- erating procedures, can be deployed to support the ATCO (air traffic controller). By being given the opportunity to work in a safer and more rewarding environment, the ATCO’s sense of well-being is more easily maintained, thus promoting good health. The technology is always designed to support the controller and increase situational awareness.

Maintenance costs are reduced and personnel allocation can be optimised. The r-TWR Centre solution meets the requirements of high-efficiency, cost-reduction and staff allocation.

For ATC personnel, the r-TWR centre enables a flexible and stimulating working environment. Multiple ATC ratings can be obtained and rosters can be more efficiently adminis- tered.

If r-TWR is to be deployed as a contingency, some of its built-in technology e.g. camera monitoring and enhance- ment can also be used in the day-to-day operations of the traditional TWR.

Additional features such as the ability to maintain traffic identification in low visibility conditions via infrared cam- era, motion detection to alert for anomalies and on-screen label presentation will assist the ATCO greatly. This brings extra surveillance capability and enhances safety.

Additional benefits

When traffic levels permit or the contingency role is not activated, the r-TWR can be used for numerous additional activities and provide other benefits:

Perform proficiency training and evaluation

Conduct emergency training

Simulate traffic patterns to eliminate bottlenecks in airside infrastructure

Conduct record-and-replay for investigative purposes

Maintenance of several ATC sites is reduced to just one

Location of r-TWR can be decided based on required security level
