SE ASIA’S FIRST CENTRE OF EXCELLENCE FOR DIGITAL TOWERS IN SINGAPORE
Singapore Technologies Electronics Limited (ST Electronics) and Saab Digital Air Traffic Solutions AB (SDATS) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to establish South East Asia’s first Centre of Excellence (CoE) for Airport Digital Towers in Singapore. The Digital Tower is a revolutionary air traffic management solution that enhances airport operations through digitalisation and integration of airport control tower functions, enabling remote operations and significant cost savings for operators.
The CoE will provide a test-bed for best-in-class technologies, with the aim to drive the implementation of Digital Towers in the region. The Digital Tower provides a smarter approach to air traffic control, allowing operations to be remotely controlled from an operations
centre, instead of a physical tower. Airport operations will benefit from enhanced safety levels, greater situational awareness for air traffic controllers, improved coverage of the airport surface movement area, as well as substantial cost savings.
