Air Traffic Controllers to remotely navigate Budapest Airport’s traffic
As a result of HungaroControl’s latest innovation, the so called Remote Tower system, Budapest Airport (BUD) will be the first among the world’s medium-capacity airports, where the arrival and departure air traffic control can be independent from airport environment.
Satellite navigation at 7 civil and 3 military airports
With 85% funding intensity and as an individual applicant, HungaroControl has been able to secure nearly 700 thousand euros in form of an INEA (Innovations and Networks Executive Agency) grant to carry out its project ‘Implementation of PBN procedures in Hungary (PBN4HU)’. Within the framework of this project performance based navigation (PBN) procedures will be designed for 7 civil and 3 military airports in Hungary. These procedures will enable airspace users to carry out satellite based navigation at those aerodromes. As an additional part of the project, a national GNSS- (GPS, Galileo and GLONASS) signal monitoring network is to be installed as well.
Hungarian-Romanian-Bulgarian Free Route: further decrease in the emission of airplanes
HungaroControl Zrt. and ROMATSA, the Romanian air navigation service provider helped to establish the free route concept in Bulgaria, which allows the free use of Bulgarian airspace from 30th March. Airplanes may freely use the airspace between the defined entry points and exit points without restrictions, even following the shortest route possible. Based on the experience, this results in a decrease of fuel consumption and emissions of airplanes.
