Interest in Digital Towers is growing rapidly around the world, including in Latin America. To support this growing interest, Saab and Atech are joining forces to provide a sustainable and efficient Digital Tower solution for the region.

Saab has solid experience in executing the entire Digital Towers operation process, from the initial phase, doing technical, business and implementation analyses, to training and organizational change management. The first remotely controlled airport in the world is Örnsköldsvik Airport in Sundsvall (Sweden), which was developed and put into operation by Saab and the company LFV, operating since 21 April 2015.

Now, through the partnership between Saab and Atech, this experience will be made available for civil and military applications in Latin America. Atech with its portfolio of digital solutions, such as the remote AFIS (Aerodrome Flight Information Service) in operation at DECEA (Department of Airspace Control in Brazil), and its strong presence and knowledge of the region, together with the leadership Saab's industrial unit in Digital Towers, form a strong combination to operate in the ATM (Air Traffic Management) digital solutions market.

“Partnering with Atech in the Latin American market will improve our local product offering and provide a business model that combines the best of both worlds,” says Per Ahl, CEO of Saab Digital Air Traffic Solutions.

“With Saab, we will be able to offer attractive Digital Tower solutions for civil and military applications, expanding the integration of remote operations to our digital ATM solutions” says Edson Mallaco, CEO of Atech.

This cooperation is the basis for future joint innovations in support of new efficient digital services as well as a way to reduce the overall environmental footprint of the ATM (Air Traffic Management) market.
