Nina Becker - Technical Account Manager
Nina Becker started her professional journey in Germany. Today she lives and works at the shore of Lake Geneva: As a technical account manager at skyguide, she is in charge of the study “Digital Tower Geneva” among others.
Crossing borders in every respect
As a woman in a male-dominated environment, as a German in western Switzerland or as an industrial engineer at the intersection between technology and customers, Nina’s reality is in constant adjustment to different subjects, characters and challenges. «I actually don’t see how else it could be” is how she describes her professional life experiences until today. Particularly thrilled about what is to come, she thinks that at skyguide she keeps an eye on the complete supply chain from the data sources to their processing, up to the Human-Machine-Interface.
Getting a safe overview, without a view on the airport?
Currently, one of the most interesting topics for Nina resides in the study of a Digital Tower, which she manages at skyguide. In collaboration with her colleagues from the operational area and from the airport she is busy with the examination of remote technologies and answers to questions like:
What does a digital tower actually mean for skyguide?
Is a tower set up remotely an option to be considered – even without the controllers’ direct and human eye on the Airport activities?
What technical infrastructure is in fact necessary to provide the air traffic controller all the resources available for their tasks to be accomplished?
Well planned or simply went well?
Just like her innovative study, iterative is a term that perfectly fits Nina’s career. When she decided to learn French nine years ago, and thus completed a bilingual school program with this purpose in mind, she simply took that decision on instinct. At that moment, did she already suspect that her decision would later lead her to western Switzerland? “Absolut nicht” Nina replies in our tongue before laughing. And yet, for Nina, the circle is now closed at skyguide – and not only from a linguistic point of view.
«Our study Remote / Digital Tower Geneva deals with an innovative subject. We do not know in advance and with one hundred percent certainty where the results of the study will take us. For now, we can only define the first steps and learn agilely from the experience that we build from them.”
