For some, the idea of a digital tower means recreating what you already have in a remote location, but the reality can be so much more. 

NATS and Searidge are working with airports to combine the latest camera and machine learning technology with airfield and ATM data to solve some universal challenges – from low visibility to stand management.

The result is a genuine digital airport, where disparate systems come together to help people make the best possible decisions, improving safety, operational resilience and the passenger experience.

Key Learning Points

In this webinar:

  • Learn how artificial intelligence and machine learning can deliver practical benefits to your airport
  • Discover how digital tower technology can be applied within your existing tower to solve real operational challenges
  • Hear case studies from airports around the world.
