The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) and Thales have signed an agreement to design and develop an open air traffic management (ATM) system architecture over the next 20 months.
The Open ATM System architecture for Singapore is to be modular, scalable, and supplier-agnostic. It will enable greater flexibility and new ATM innovations to be integrated at an accelerated pace, the CAAS announced during the World ATM Congress in Madrid from 12 to 14 March.
ANSPs need to demonstrate an agile approach to technology as it continues to change with a growing emphasis on automation and digitalisation. “Open ATM System will also benefit the ATM community and ANSPs, who can tap on the R&D knowledge and architecture to level up their ATM systems and innovate improvements,” said CAAS Director General Kevin Shum.
