CAAS and Thales to Cooperate on Air Traffic Management Technology

The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) and Thales have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to cooperate on developing new concepts of operations for air traffic management (ATM), as well as the next generation of ATM technologies.

Mr Kevin Shum, Director-General of CAAS, said, “Aviation is on the cusp of a technology revolution. As a leading Air Navigation Services Provider, we are committed to exploring new innovations and digital technologies to develop ATM solutions that address the unique challenges faced by Singapore and the Asia Pacific region. We believe such investments will not only enhance our ATM capabilities, but also make a real difference towards the sustainable advancement of aviation in the region.”

The MOU will facilitate cooperation in analysing the impact digital trends have on the aviation ecosystem, applying artificial intelligence in ATM, and co-developing an ATM system architecture that is future-ready and flexible to allow new advanced technologies to be easily incorporated into operations.Mixed use of airspace for manned aircraft and drones will also be explored. These activities will support the development of the next generation of ATM operations that will be nimble, scalable and adaptable. 

Mr Alex Cresswell, Thales EVP for Land and Air Systems, said, “Thales no longer views digital revolution as an emerging trend but as an immediate reality, with a €1 billion investment in digital technology already materialised by the group. The aviation ecosystem is one of the domains we feel will benefit most from digitisation. Through this multidisciplinary relationship CAAS and Thales will collaborate for the air traffic management of the future, and we could not be prouder.”
