SESAR showcases Europe as leader in ATM Modernisation at Singapore Air Show

Feb. 26, 2018

The SESAR JU participated in the Singapore Air Show event with an exhibition stand in order to strengthen the international profile of SESAR and showcase the European public-private partnership as a leading research and innovation initiative for ATM modernisation.

Throughout the course of the week, SESAR was privileged to welcome several industrial leaders and international delegations to find out more about Europe’s modernisation efforts.

Using a 3D virtual system, visitors were given the opportunity to step into the shoes of an air traffic controller and manage traffic at a busy airport using a range of digital tools delivered by both programmes. The 3-minute experience showed how the digital transformation of ATM can improve the efficiency and safety of airport operations, while also reducing the fuel consumption and emissions of aircraft. The 3D experience was particularly popular with the younger visitors to the air show, who patiently lined up to see for themselves the future of ATM.
