Singapore's Flight Information Region will now be under full surveillance.
The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) has inked a memorandum of agreement with Aireon LLC to enhance aircraft tracking in the Singapore Flight Information Region (FIR).
Currently, some parts of the Singapore FIR are not under surveillance coverage, such as remote areas and over the oceans. In such areas, air traffic controllers must provide a larger separation between aircraft to ensure safety of the aircraft and passengers.
Through this collaboration, Aireon aims to work with CAAS to enhance surveillance coverage over the entire Singapore FIR with the deployment of a space-based Automatic Dependent Surveillance - Broadcast (ADS-B) service.
