Saab Digital Air Traffic Solutions has received an order to install a digital tower at NATO NAEW&CF E3A Component in Geilenkirchen, Germany which provides remote air traffic control.
NATO Air Base Geilenkirchen will use the digital tower for live operations during the refurbishment of the current control tower. This is the first order for an operational digital air traffic control tower at a military air base. Delivery will take place in 2020.
The digital air traffic control tower was introduced during 2015 in Sweden when Ornskoldsvik Airport became the first in the world with remote air traffic control which was followed by Sundsvall Timra Airport in December 2017. Starting in 2019, air traffic control at both Linkoping Saab Airport and Scandinavian Mountains Airport in Salen will be conducted remotely from Sundsvall.
Saab has developed the second generation of digital air traffic control towers, which will be installed at Geilenkirchen.
“NATO has stringent requirements on availability and security. With this equipment, NATO will possess new capabilities, enabled by a digital air traffic control solution,” says Per Ahl, head of Saab Digital Air Traffic Solutions.
Saab Digital Air Traffic Solutions can manage the entire process from planning and implementation to the administration of air traffic control services.
