The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) has signed agreements with four international organisations to enhance its research and development of air traffic management (ATM) technologies.

The authority says the agreements with the US Federal Aviation Administration, SESAR Joint Undertaking, the MITRE Corp and Airbus Prosky were signed on the sidelines of the International Civil Aviation Organisation Air Navigation Conference.

"With their extensive experience and expertise in ATM modernisation, these organisations will bring significant value to the development of ATM solutions for Singapore and the Asia-Pacific region," says Yap Ong Heng, director-general of the CAAS.

In September, CAAS announced it had set up a S$200 million ($163 million) fund to further research and development of new ATM technologies, with a view of establishing the country as a key hub in modernising ATM systems in the region.
