44 The beauty of the NACO Digital Tower designs is that it is still a much-reduced CAPEX cost – a little as a third of the cost of a traditional tower – with the same reduction in spatial impact. AN ICON REINVENTED Air control towers have stood still for too long. As airports face the need to find ways to facilitate growth and expansion – while finding efficiency in CAPEX and OPEX – they offer clear opportunities for improvements and enhancements. Such efficiencies must be found and actioned appropriately, to the benefit of each airport’s needs. Today’s remote, virtual towers can fall short of that standard in those contexts where robust digital infrastructure isn’t readily available – or where the overhaul of daily operations isn’t desired. A flexible solution could be the answer. One that works across airports big and small – and can operate remotely, or within the airport itself. NACO’s Digital Tower concept reinvents an icon, bringing the innovation and insights of digital technology, while maintaining the beloved look of airport towers into the future. © Victor Kroot, Seba Rsk, NACO | SPECIAL BULLETIN SERIES | 2023 | |
