HungaroControl to showcase its most recent research, development and innovation achievements in Madrid
Digital messaging between pilots and air traffic controllers, remote tower control, smart glasses that track the ATCO’s eye and head movements, a simulation centre suitable for testing new technologies – HungaroControl presented its latest developments and services at the prestigious World ATM Congress 2015, held in Madrid from 10-12 March.
HungaroControl has just launched its “virtual” tower implementation project (Remote Tower, rTWR), which will enable providing location independent aerodrome control service. A complete Advanced Surface Movement Guidance and Control System (A-SMGCS) will be set up by INDRA Navia AS until March 2016 to implement a remote tower at Budapest.
Following 5 February 2015, HungaroControl will be first in Europe to abolish the entire fixed flight route network, thus enabling airplanes to use the airspace freely, without any restrictions. This way, airplanes can take the shortest possible flight path between the entry and exit points in Hungary’s airspace.
