Airbus ProSky, CAAS Partner to Improve Air Traffic Management in Asia
Airbus ProSky has teamed with the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore to support the modernization of the air transportation system in Singapore and throughout the Asia Pacific region. The partnership resulted from a series of joint technical workshops between the two entities, where they determined that it was necessary to modernize the air traffic management (ATM) practices in the Asia Pacific to help support the growth in air traffic in the region.
Under the new partnership Airbus ProSky will assist CAAS in building the Center of Excellence for ATM in Singapore, which will host companies that are looking to develop and adapt new ATM concepts.
“Singapore is at the nucleus of the fast growing Asia Pacific region, where air traffic movements are growing rapidly and collaborative ATM systems are needed to help meet that demand,” said Eric Stefanello, CEO, Airbus ProSky.
