Remote Tower Center - Planning Tool
Abstract: Saab has a product, Remote Tower, which allows air traffic controllers to supervise and control an airport remotely. Today an air traffic controller can operate on one airport at the time and switch between airports. The next phase of this system is to allow the air traffic controller to simultaneously control multiple airports, i.e. going from controlling airports in sequence to controlling airports in parallel. The airports are connected to and controlled from one single airport control center. This leads to a planning problem, both in long term and short term, for staffing this airport control center to maintain the capacity of the connected airports. This thesis will present the process of the development of a tool allowing a user to plan the schedule the staffing of a remote tower center. By utilizing this tool the impact of different restrictions affecting the planning will be evaluated and presented in the results.
