The Northern Colorado Regional Airport, formerly the Fort Collins - Loveland Airport, has awarded a contract to Searidge Technologies to build a remote air-traffic control tower. Using cameras and radar, air traffic controllers will be able to monitor the airport surface and airspace while being located in a remote facility at the airport. The construction is planned to take about two years and is being funded through the Colorado Division of Aeronautics. Once it is completed, the program will be used as a model for other projects across the country.
