not a fan of this end run around pilot/passenger safety for the sake of spending less. These promises of better everything from reducing manpower at the tower i believe to be foolish, shortsighted, and dumb, dumb.

Who's going to monitor the video monitors???

If the system is made like in Sweden, then there are controllers sitting in a room with monitors all around showing what the cameras sees, but they are in another city, with the ability to monitor several airports with less traffic on the same workshift.

I guess in time controllers will be able to work from home.

I doubt that, they need redundancy so that the system has several ways to stay connected and real backup electric systems
