Remote air traffic control could be implemented throughout India

Remote air traffic control and monitoring allows traditional concrete control towers to be replaced with dozens of high resolution, infra-red cameras around runways that feed live images to screens in buildings far from the airport.

The technology, used in countries including Australia, Canada, Ireland and Sweden, enables flights at multiple airports to be monitored from one location, reducing the need for air traffic controllers and physical towers at every airport.

The Airports Authority of India (AAI) has initiated a study on remote monitoring of flights, with a recommendation expected in September, one source has said. A decision to proceed could be a boost to companies like Sweden’s Saab and Canada-based Searidge Technologies that are in talks with the airport regulator to bring the technology to India.
