Adacel’s REVAL virtual Air Traffic Control (ATC) tower system delivers a wide spectrum of digital tower operational solutions, from consulting services to system design, development, deployment, and support, for a successful transition to virtual tower operations.
REVAL is part of the Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR) solution pack for single remote tower operations in medium sized airports. It was built on modular, open architecture principles suitable for a variety of aerodrome operational needs, including integration with existing or new air traffic management, communication, navigation, and surveillance systems. REVAL was created to provide all the benefits of a remote tower with a more cost-effective approach.
The tower can be used remote or onsite, for single or multiple aerodrome operations. When used remote, this virtual ATC tower can operate independently in a one-to-one aerodrome control setting or as part of a multiple virtual tower center.
