HungaroControl uses high-tech equipment for remote tower

KVM devices from G&D offer ATCOs 24/7 support

With HungaroControl’s remote tower concept, Budapest Airport, which counts around 100,000 flight movements per year, is the first remote-controlled airport of its size. For ATCOs working in the tower, it is extremely important to have a direct view at arrivals, departures and the ground traffic. Managing movements without being able to directly monitoring the ground from the tower is a revolutionary approach and therefore a great challenge for the cooperation and communication of all parties involved. HungaroControl has tackled these challenges by applying G&D KVM products in one of Europe’s most modern remote control centres.

Whether arrival, departure or managing ground traffic – G&D’s KVM equipment offers reliable and invisible support for ATCOs. With KVM, computers can be moved out of the control centre while ATCOs are still able to fully access them remotely. The redundancy concept based on the KVM matrix switch ControlCenter-Digital offers maximum security and provides prevention against failures.

Hungary's first remote tower concept is based on the bi-directional integration of the existing ground monitoring system and a camera network that is set up at several locations at the airport in order to improve the situation awareness of air traffic controllers and increase flight safety. All camera images are forwarded to four video wall servers and finally displayed on a huge video wall with 32 screens (10 x 3 m).

This video wall does not only provide ATCOs with comprehensive visual information, but offers a complete overview of the entire airport, too. The KVM technology in the background facilitates the work of air traffic controllers without being noticed and therefore serves as a reliable 24/7 wingman.
