On 11 October Kongsberg reported that at Røst airport in the north of Norway, the world’s first NINOX remote tower air traffic control system has been installed and begun testing.
The NINOX remote towers programme is said to be the world’s largest remote tower programme with more than 15 airports designated for Remote Tower Systems. The illustration here shows the structures as installed.
Following the announcement in 2015 of Norwegian airport operator Avinor‘s agreement with KONGSBERG and Indra Navia to develop and install the world’s largest remotely operated air traffic control system, the first system has now been installed and is under test. Installation and approval of the next 14 airports will be accomplished through to 2020, it is understood.
