CANSO Academy: Improving efficiency through remote and digital towers: Part 2
The new CANSO guidance material for remote and digital towers introduces the remote and digital tower concept and technologies. It also explores the drivers, challenges and pressures that can influence operations, provides regulatory, safety and Human Factors insights, and shares a variety of industry case studies.
Its aim is to answer specific questions that ANSPs may have, including what a digital tower is, why and when can they be implemented, how to get started, and what is next for digital towers.
To support General Managers on their own digital towers journey, a new, three-part CANSO webinar series provides an accessible learning experienceto help ATM industry leaders understand the guidance material, gain in depth knowledge of the technological aspects, and learn more about the operational perspective from early adopters.

The second webinar was a panel discussion with vendors and systems providers and will address the technological aspects of remote and digital towers. It was an in-depth introduction of the technologies and systems applied in various case studies. Attendees were able to question the panel to find out more about the technology and systems that support digital towers now and in the future.
