An Air Traffic Control Tower (ATCT) is a tall glass enclosed structure situated in an airport to guide and facilitate the safety and flow of traffic in controlled airspace or on the ground. Air Traffic Control (ATC) helps to prevent collisions, guide aircrafts and vehicles around the airport using visual signalling and provide air or ground communications using radar
devices and radio communication. The Air Traffic Control Tower provides separation rules to ensure aircrafts have enough physical space around them at all times to avoid accidents. Aircrafts are fitted with collision avoidance systems to alert pilots when they are too close to other aircrafts or vehicles. Air traffic control tower controllers manage traffic up to 30 miles out and deliver instructions and advice based on their observations from the control tower.
