CAAS, OSTIn, SITA and Startical signs MOU
The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS), OSTIn, SITA and Startical have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to perform a proof-of-concept on the use of #space-based Very High Frequency (VHF) voice for communication between pilots and air traffic controllers for air traffic management #ATM.
The proof of concept will demonstrate the feasibility of the new technology and its benefits over ground-based VHF voice communications, and collect the data needed for global evaluation, standards setting and adoption. The MOU was signed by the four parties on the sidelines of the World Air Traffic Management Congress in Madrid, Spain on 21 June 2022.
Representing OSTIn at the signing was OSTIn Executive Director David Tan. Noted Mr Tan, “This collaboration is in line with OSTIn’s strategy of exploring the development of space capabilities to support critical domains such as aviation, maritime, sustainability and digital resilience. Singapore players working on space-based technologies will also have the opportunity to collaborate with international partners to build and further strengthen capabilities within our local space ecosystem.”
