In this paper the initial results of the DLR project Remote Airport Tower Operation Research (RapTOr) are described. Within this project an augmented vision video panorama system and a corresponding HMI is developed for remote surface movement management of small airports or of movement areas not directly visible for the controller. Ground traffic management is performed from a remotely located control center, e.g. a tower at a different airport. The setup and functions of the high resolution video panorama system with integrated pan-tilt zoom camera (PTZ) at Braunschweig research airport is described. It provides the framework for integrating SMGCS traffic data, real time image processing and replay possibility of the complete 180° - panorama. Furthermore we describe how the results of a formal tower work analysis are transferred into a cognitive operator model for simulating the RTO controller work processes to be integrated into the conventional tower work environment.
