The tower is expected to enhance air traffic management and the safety of runway and ground operations.

NATS will set up multiple cameras in the airport. The cameras will be able to track, pan, tilt and zoom to provide an enhanced view of the site with live operational data overlaid on a display.

Martin Rolfe, NATS’ chief executive officer, said: ‘I believe the work we do together over the next two years will help shape how smart digital tower and smart airport technologies are applied to hub airports all over the world.’
