CAAS, JCAB Sign Memorandum Of Cooperation

Will Promote ATM Transformation In The Asia Pacific Region

The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) and the Civil Aviation Bureau of Japan (JCAB) have signed a Memorandum of Cooperation (MoC) to jointly promote air traffic management (ATM) transformation in the Asia Pacific. The MoC was signed by Mr Kevin Shum, Director-General of CAAS, and Mr Hitoshi Ishizaki, Director-General of JCAB’s Air Navigation Services Department (JANS), on the sidelines of World ATM Congress in Madrid.

The MoC will facilitate the sharing of information, knowledge and expertise between the two organisations. It will also enable collaboration in ATM modernisation efforts and in research activities to develop ATM concepts, solutions and technologies for the next generation of ATM systems.

CAAS’ and JCAB’s mutual interest for a closer partnership was started through interactions at Civil Air Navigation Services Organisation (CANSO) events.

“Partnership is one of the three pillars of Vision 2020, CANSO’s strategic framework for the air traffic management industry," said Jeff Poole, Director-General of CANSO, who attended the signing ceremony. "I am therefore delighted to see two important CANSO Members in Asia Pacific working in partnership on practical steps towards our vision of seamless and harmonised airspace.”

“The establishment of this MoC furthers CAAS’ vision to develop Singapore as a Center of Excellence (CoE) for ATM," said Kevin Shum, Director-General of CAAS. "This MoC is CAAS’ first with an air navigation services provider from the Asia Pacific region. With our combined experience and expertise in the region, I am confident we will be able to develop valuable ATM solutions for our countries and the Asia Pacific region.”

“I have been highly interested in Singapore’s ATM initiatives, and at the same time intuition whispered to me that CAAS and JCAB could be united as partners in the Asia Pacific region," said Hitoshi Ishizaki, Director-General of JANS. "I am convinced that we could gear up both ATM modernisation and Seamless Sky realization by reinforcing mutual cooperation in this area.”
