Airport tower

Cost-effective and space saving systems

While passenger numbers are on the rise, low-cost carriers have optimized their processes and capacity utilization in order to transport more guests with the same number of flight movements or less. This puts pressure on ANSPs and airport operators to provide both reliable and efficient air traffic control services for each flight during approach, taxi and departure. ANSP infrastructure is usually restricted to existing space at the tower and/or data center, since any airport expansion is usually dedicated to revenue generating activities such as shops and restaurants.

CERTIUM® offers the solution to these challenges, with reliable yet cost-effective and space saving systems for small and medium airports. These can also be scaled up to support traffic growth or the requirements of international hubs. From a few controller working positions connected to several radios up to dozens of CWPs with hundreds of radios, the CERTIUM® advanced communications suite is the ideal choice for any air traffic control tower scenario. The reliable direction finding technology of CERTIUM® LOCATE geolocates the aircraft calling the tower and displays it to the controller in order to avoid call-sign confusion and reduce read-back errors, which increases safety.

Remote tower

CERTIUM® supports digitalized/virtualized tower operations where the controller doesn't work in the control tower, but rather from a remote location, either in the airport's vicinity or hundreds of kilometers away. The full IP architecture of the communications system integrates seamlessly with the sensor and camera technology and acts as a platform for voice and data transmission.
