A High-tech Simulator to Manage Crowded Skies

A High-tech Simulator to Manage Crowded Skies

WITH air traffic projected to soar in the years to come, there is greater pressure on air navigation service providers to handle more aircraft – and little room for error. Thanks to the Air Traffic Control Tower Simulator developed by NTU’s Air Traffic Management Research Institute, there is a chance to prepare for the time. Designed to optimise an airport’s flight capacity, the two-storey tower gives a 360-degree panoramic view of any airport it simulates. The tower is also believed to the largest in the world used for research purposes.

Benefits:
  • Optimises flight capacity at an airport or in airspace while minimising travel delay
  • Assesses efficiency in reducing traffic congestion at the airport
  • Improves aviation safety

"There will be pressure on air navigation service providers to handle more aircraft, and less room for error,"

Transport Minister Lui Tuck Yew

Moving Forward:

There are currently 10 research projects in the pipeline which will use the simulation tower.​
