Supporting small airports using virtual reality

Camera systems that monitor airports remotely offer many new possibilities for air traffic control and airport operators. However, the costs of purchasing, installing and maintaining the latest remote monitoring technology make it impracticable for airfields with a low volume of traffic and revenue. The German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) has teamed up with the Osnabrück University and RWTH Aachen University to develop an alternative concept based on lower-cost components and Virtual Reality (VR) that will allow these airfields to benefit from remote monitoring.
