Providing Safe Air Traffic Control Systems for Disaster Relief
One of the fastest ways to provide relief after any natural disaster is by air transport. However, almost inevitably, the local Air Traffic Control (ATC) facilities, and particularly the airport Visual Control Room (VCR) that would normally provide safe, effective approach and departure operations into the airport will have been badly impacted, if not destroyed. This creates the additional risk of accidents in the air or on the ground potentially preventing the use of the airport surface for relief activity.
This risk can be largely mitigated by the provision of a small, trailer mounted, elevating ATC tower providing ground to air communications and including all necessary systems for local ATC and powered by a standalone generator.
