Airports face financial constraints in the use of Air Traffic Services (ATS) provided by the conventional tower. The Virtual Air Traffic Control Tower is anticipated to be an economical and safe alternative for a conventional tower. The enhancement of the prevailing Remote Virtual Tower System comes with a challenge of improving the efficiency of Air Traffic Control Systems in terms of safety and security. This article describes the various enhancements that can be implemented in remote tower systems and airports to enable effective ATS. The modifications are incorporated to the pan tilt zoom (PTZ) camera systems to offer improvised visibility and target tracking technology thereby identifying unauthorized surface movements, engine heat, leakages, wildlife on an airfield and produce anomaly warning signals helping to mitigate risks before accidents. It also helps in reducing the time taken for these operations, if done manually. The implementation of an Extended Reality (XR) system and additional features considering the cost saving aspects will increase the productivity of control work. Suggestions are also made to upgrade the current software such that the overall performance of ATS will increase. These changes can help the controllers to detect early signs of performance and deploy predictive maintenance accordingly
