Extended TitleCentralised Surveillance, Airspace Change and Remote Towers Air Traffic Management Service
Extended Description

Highlands and Islands Airports Limited (HIAL) would like to inform the potential scope and specification of a Centralised surveillance, Airspace change and Remote tower solution from which to deliver Air traffic services (ATS). This is with a view to potentially procuring a fully managed ‘turn-key’ solution, or other potential delivery model, that will deliver everything necessary to transfer ATS operations.

Any procured solution must involve the operational Air traffic services staff from the start of the programme and continue to actively involve them throughout the design, implementation and operational delivery of the Centralised surveillance, Airspace change and Remote tower Solution.

It is currently envisaged that a fully managed ‘turn-key’ solution would involve the design, development, testing, validation, transition and maintenance of all necessary ATS technical infrastructure plus construction/building modification of the Central Surveillance Centre.

To the extent possible, it is also expected that the necessary transition support, such as training and support to approvals will also be included in the procurement such that everything is developed, installed, tested and even transitioned to operations, ready for HIAL to ‘turn the key’ and take over operations.

The end result will be the provision of a non-radar approach surveillance service (sensors, processing and a centralised suite of approach positions) and Remote or ‘digital’ aerodrome service at 7 airports.

In parallel to the tasks above, it is also expected that an airspace change process will be undertaken to introduce controlled airspace at several airports, for which HIAL would seek support. Any phasing of the tasks defined above will also need to take account of this airspace change process.
