Advanced automated tower

Intelligently connected

Frequentis drives ongoing change in tower operations. With flexible support for single to multi-screen operations, we enable the entire air traffic control tower to be operated intuitively, giving a clear view on all ground and airspace operations leading up to full UTM integration.  

All information, from flight data and weather surveillance to airfield lighting all the way to unified communications, is seamlessly integrated into a single operational display that enables maximum awareness and efficiency for the controller.  


All data is connected and intelligently delivered at the precise moment the controller needs it. Advanced safety net capabilities continuously track operations and send automated alarms in the event of safety-relevant problems.  

Frequentis advanced tower solutions are designed for maximum safety. The high-definition camera systems utilised by Frequentis smartVision provide an enhanced surveillance option that can automatically recognize runway intrusion or debris. 

The evolution of the technology allows for further intelligent air traffic controller automation support, including the autonomous handling of UTM clearance requests or speech-based recognition of pilot communications for automated routing and enhanced safety nets. 

Products & Solutions


smartTOOLS – the Frequentis integrated information and control system – provides a complete portfolio of applications related to tower and runway control, and weather information. Deployed worldwide in more than 36 countries, smartTOOLS can be tailored to any environment, from regional to high-capacity towers. By enabling significant automation, smartTOOLS helps reduce costs while increasing efficiency and safety.


Whether your tower is located at one of the world’s busiest hubs or at a quiet regional airfield – or anything in between – Frequentis offers the ideal flight data management product for supporting your tower digitalisation programme. smartSTRIPS, our flight data management product, is designed for towers and approach units of all sizes and degrees of operational complexity.


The Frequentis A-SMGCS (advanced surface movement guidance and control system) provides tailored services covering surveillance, safety, control, planning, routing and guidance while taking into account local procedures and infrastructure constraints. Airports and ANSPs benefit from the unique and comprehensive digital tower portfolio where A-SMGCS combines best in class products to deliver a seamlessly integrated solution.


Since 2008, TowerPad has been in active service at several major airports, providing artificial intelligence to support advanced user-centric automation services for air traffic controllers. The product has been proven to reduce costs for airlines, airports and ANSPs. It also improves safety and reduces taxi times, and consequently the environmental impact of airport traffic.

X10 Voice Communication Solution

X10 is Frequentis’ innovative voice communication solution based on a state-of-the-art service-oriented architecture, facilitating the transition of pure ATM-based voice communications to Unified Aeronautical Communications. Operating on the Frequentis MosaiX platform, it can easily be integrated with other technologies from the Frequentis portfolio to deliver strong operational benefits.

Departure Manager (DMAN)

The Frequentis Departure Manager solution supports consistent optimised planning of outbound airport traffic, in turn driving optimised target times at the runway and the stands. Its key objectives are the efficient management of airport departure traffic, to ensure maximum utilisation of the available runway capacity, and the appropriate management of additional constraints such as Minimum Departure Intervals (MDIs) and Air Traffic Flow Management (ATFM) requirements.

Integrated Arrival Departure Manager (IAD)

It can be difficult to optimise runway usage at high-demand, capacity-constrained airports, especially in the case of mixed-mode operations at airports that have just one runway for both arrivals and departures. The Frequentis Integrated Arrival Departure Manager (IAD) solution addresses the challenge of balancing arrivals and departures for maximised airport performance, for example by optimising the efficiency of integrating departures into the arrival stream.
