34 About the Authors Eric Wernsperger, Digital Tower Expert and Vice President Sales, Frequentis DFS Aerosense Eric joined Frequentis in 2007 as a Solution Consultant for inter- national Digital Tower solution projects. With his degrees in Telecommunications Engineering, Computer Science and Entrepre- neurship he traversed several roles at Frequentis until eventually becoming the VP Sales for Frequentis DFS Aerosense in 2022. Veit Voges, RTC Product Manager, DFS Aviation Services GmbH Veit joined DFS Aviation Services GmbH in 2022 as a Product Manager for RTC. In his former roles as at Zurich Airport AG and PwC he gained extensive knowledge, both on RDT and airport operations. Veit holds a PhD as well a s a Dipl.-Ing in Air Transport Engineering from TU Berlin and an MBA from Salisbury University, MD, USA. • Harmonising technology used across multiple operations for simplification and cost reasons. • Integrating new technologies more easily, applying them to new airports regardless of the size and addressing new markets e.g., vertiports. The financial benefits for ANSPs and airports alike, and the increased appeal to a new generation of ATCOs are quite clear. In this case the ease of introducing new cost-effective technologies for all airports no matter their size, thereby impacting the way airports can be managed should not be underestimated. Preparing for the Future As increasingly more ANSPs will leverage the full potential of RDTs and more airports will be managed via the RTC concepts, we will also see further breakthroughs in technology solutions, like artificial intelligence (AI) in object recognition or augmented reality. Innovative operating concepts also have the potential for the integration of vertiports into the RTC environment. Furthermore, implementations in regions with low-network quality requiring a low-bandwidth compact RTC solution or modular and highly flexible temporary installations in contingency solutions will prove that RDT can successfully master an even wider range of challenges in the future. About FREQUENTIS DFS AEROSENSE Frequentis AG and German ANSP DFS Deutsche Flugsicherung GmbH, through its wholly owned subsidiary DFS Aviation Services, formed joint venture Frequentis DFS Aerosense in 2018, to deliver turnkey remote tower solutions worldwide. Frequentis contributes the technologies, as well as expertise, in developing customised remote tower systems, and its worldwide network of locally represented subsidiaries that can implement remote towers globally. DFS aviation services contributes its operational air traffic management experience in consulting, validation, transition, and training, as well as the deep operational experience gained through developing its own remote tower solution.
