No more system failures! Airports to get remote and mirror image control of busy ATCs; what it means


The Airports Authority of India (AAI) now plans to have remote as well as mirror image air traffic control systems as it looks to save costs and put in place reliable back up options in case of any system failures.

According to a PTI report, the national airports operator is now in the process of preparing a common tender platform to seek entities that can provide remote Air Traffic Control (ATC) systems.

The ATC is a service provided by the ground-based air traffic controllers who direct the aircraft on the ground and through controlled airspace, and can provide advisory services to aircraft in non-controlled airspace.

The primary purpose of ATC is to prevent collisions, organise and expedite the flow of air traffic, and provide information in support for pilots. Read More
