Searidge Technologies, a technology innovator providing Remote Tower and Digital Airport solutions, has announced their Remote Tower solution has been certified for live operations, without restrictions, at Budapest Airport (BUD).
The Remote Tower system has been certified by the Hungarian Civil Aviation Authority, which means that live service can be provided from the remote tower (rTWR) with no capacity restrictions and no shadow operation is needed from the current physical tower.
Kornél Szepessy, CEO, HungaroControl commented: “HungaroControl and Searidge have created a strong partnership and together have achieved remarkable things. Our combined efforts have not only resulted in a certified remote tower for Budapest airport, but also created an opportunity for us to share what we have learned to help other ANSPs with their remote tower programs.”
The certified system will be used for contingency operations, live training and as a back-up system, but by 2018, HungaroControl’s goal is to operate a full-time remote tower in Budapest.
Moodie Cheikh, CEO, Searidge Technologies added: “We are happy to have been given the opportunity to showcase the strength of our technology and reconfirm its’ viability to provide safe, efficient control services. HungaroControl now has the busiest certified remote tower, and we look forward to continuing our momentum with them as we they move towards their longer-term vision for the system.”
