Along with the evolving needs of operators in Indonesia as the tower lessee, this has significantly increased the ratio of collocation.
Bali tower has three big runway operation and every step on the operation has a different challange. In the survey location operation, validation data and time efficiency are they key to create a nice survey and make the location ready to construct.
