WAM study has been launched | 13.02.2015

Considering the new developments regarding surveillance, based on the surveillance strategy developed in collaboration with EUROCONTROL, ALBCONTROL has started WAM study. This study aims to identify the best positions where the sensors MLAT should be located in order to improve surveillance coverage.  WAM will support operations from 2017 and will allow controllers to see aircraft beyond the reach of radar coverage, preventing delays, cancellations and improving airport capacity. This study is the first step from traditional surveillance to a more advanced one.
