Singapore – The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) and COMSOFT last month signed site acceptance test certificates for the most advanced ADS-B receivers plus an ADS-B processing system. After the conclusion of reliability acceptance tests, the system is now ready to enter operational service.

In December 2008 the Singaporean air navigation service provider CAAS contracted COMSOFT regarding the deployment of ADS-B sensors and a redundant data processor for sharing and distributing ADS-B data, plus an additional development and evaluation system. Additionally QCMS, a control and monitoring platform with enhanced statistic and evaluation features, was implemented. It allows the comfortable management of up to 64 redundant ground stations.

The new installation was complemented by the advanced network management system CNMS, as specified by CAAS. As of now all COMSOFT components are implemented and awaiting the connection to the ATM system in CAAS’ new ATC centre.
