Saab Digital Air Traffic Solutions (SDATS) has signed a 20 year framework agreement with Air Traffic Control the Netherlands (LVNL) for remote tower systems. SDATS has received an initial order within the framework contract for establishing remote towers at the airports of Groningen and Maastricht and a remote tower center at Schiphol Airport. The framework contract has options for additional airports and functions.

LVNL is a leading and an innovating Air Navigation Service Provider in the core of Europe. “We are proud to be trusted by the LVNL to deliver digital towers for their future air traffic control infrastructure.
