HungaroControl hosted Thales Users Group Conference in Budapest between 24 and 26 September. TUG is an international forum in the civil aviation industry since 1991 with the aim to foster cooperation between ANSPs and Thales. More than 140 delegates and 30 organisations exchanged best practices, shared views on innovation and digital transformation.
Dr. Tibor Benkő, Minister of Defense and Kornél Szepessy, Chief Executive Officer of HungaroControl Hungarian Air Traffic Management Ltd. (HC Zrt.) signed a cooperation agreement on 5 September, 2018 in Budapest, at the Ministry of Defense.
“Single” remote tower settings have already been deployed in former projects; however, most significant impacts in cost-effectiveness are to be expected with multiple and/or centre settings. The SESAR 2020 project PJ05 aims to bring the concept of remotely controlling multiple airports to the next maturity level. In November 2017, Frequentis AG, HungaroControl, DLR, and Selex ES GmbH (Leonardo LTP) conducted a first successful validation campaign on “Remote Tower for Multiple airports” in Braunschweig.
