  • Position Description

    Some of you may have heard of the emerging technology referred to as Remote Towers. Remote Tower (RT) technology is intended to replace the brick and mortar, tall tower building at some airports with a single-story building. Inside, controllers will control traffic from a control room using large banks of monitors displaying video images from camera masts located on the airport. Initially, Remote Towers are being located on the airport. Eventually, they will be remoted to consolidated facilities much like consolidated Terminal Radar Approach Control Facilities (TRACON) and Air Route Traffic Control Centers (ARTCC).

     

    Remote Towers are under development around the world; a few have been certified and some have actually been remoted. In the U.S., the first attempt at RT certification began at the Leesburg Executive Airport (JYO) in Leesburg, Virginia. The RT equipment at JYO is currently going through the FAA certification process. The second attempt at RT certification in the U.S. will be at the Northern Colorado Regional Airport (FNL) in Fort Collins/Loveland, Colorado.

     

    Serco will be providing the air traffic control services at FNL and will be assisting with the test and evaluation of the RT equipment. The RT certification process is scheduled to take 2 ½ to 3 years and will consist of 3 phases:

     

    Phase 1: Establish ATC services from a mobile tower (3 months)

     

    Phase 2: Operate the mobile tower. Provide subject matter expertise in the RT. Provide 3 months of ATC services from the RT while controllers in the mobile tower monitor the situation and standby, ready to take over. (12 months)

     

    Phase 3: Provide ATC services from the RT with the ability to go to the mobile tower in the event of an RT technology failure. (18 months)

     

    This is a once in a career opportunity and we are looking for controllers who want to be part of the development of this cutting-edge technology. We are looking for experienced controllers who are flexible, want to be part of a team and bring a positive attitude.
