 First Remote Digital Tower in Italy was inaugurated in Brindisi At Brindisi Airport ENAV inaugurated the first remotely managed control tower in Italy. Thanks to cutting-edge hardware and software systems, the new Remote Digital Tower enables air traffic controllers to manage take-off, landing and ground operations from a Remote Tower Module (RTM) that can also be located many kilometers away from the airport. ENAV Chairman Francesca Isgrò said: “Brindisi digital tower is the result of the joint work of ENAV people: technical, operational experts and managers supported by a Board of Directors who, from the very day of the installation, had a clear-cut view of the strategic importance of ENAV development projects. On behalf of ENAV Group, I would like to thank the Minister of sustainable infrastructures and mobility and the Italian Civil Aviation Authority (ENAC), who have followed and supported this project throughout the process.” Remote Tower Brunswick will be equipped with KVM systems from G&D Partnership between DFS Aviation Services GmbH and KVM specialist Guntermann & Drunck GmbH aims to ensure system security and efficiency More and more airports are relying on the Remote Tower concept, which involves highly efficient remote air traffic control for airports. In the future, Brunswick-Wolfsburg Airport and Emden Airfield will be controlled from the Remote Tower Brunswick. DFS Aviation Services GmbH (DAS) will offer its air traffic control services in the Remote Tower starting 2024. The feasibility of the complex technology was jointly evaluated by DAS and DLR (German Aerospace Center). 7 | REMOTE & DIGITAL TOWERS | NEWS    |
