Remote Towers Market

Frequentis (Austria) is a Major Player in the Remote Towers Market

The remote towers market is projected to grow from an estimated USD 63 million in 2019 to USD 392 million by 2025, at a CAGR of 35.53% during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to the increased cost savings enabled by remote towers. Small and medium-sized airports with low air traffic find it expensive to install traditional towers and cover their cost. Remote towers are also known as remote virtual towers or digital towers and enable multiple airports to be controlled by a single tower at a remote location. One air traffic controller controlling multiple airports leads to reduced operational costs.

Remote towers refer to air traffic control towers that are remotely located, either near or far from airports. These towers provide Air Traffic Services (ATS) remotely through real-time visual reproduction via high definition cameras. A direct out-of-the-window view of the traditional air traffic control towers is replaced with a live video feed to the air traffic control operator in a remote location. Remote towers consist of operator workstations known as controller working positions (CWPs). Remote towers can control multiple airports controlled simultaneously or on in a sequence as per a pre-determined schedule.

Remote tower systems consist of equipment at airports (radars, sensors, cameras, etc.), CWPs, and a network system connecting the equipment at the airport with the CWPs. The equipment typically includes components used for communication, information & control, flight data handling, surveillance, and visualization.
