A new Frequentis remote air traffic control tower has been installed at Brazil’s Santa Cruz airbase, Frequentis announced on 21 October.

The Frequentis smartVISION solution will enhance the way air traffic is monitored and managed.

The project, carried out by Brazilian Airspace Control Department (DECEA) via the Commission for Implementation of the Brazilian Air Space Control System (CISCEA), is the first of its kind in South America to provide actual remote air traffic control services using digital tower technology.

The smartVISION solution is made up of high resolution 360° panorama view and high-performance pan-tilt-zoom cameras located around the airbase. Data from the cameras is fed back to a video wall in the remote tower facility, equipped with two smartVISION integrated controller working positions.
