Asia Pacific Quarterly Update

Quarter 1, 2018

CANSO participated in an ICAO ADS-B Workgroup meeting in Colombo, Sri Lanka, presenting a paper on the status of automatic dependent surveillance - broadcast (ADS-B) implementation in Southeast Asia and the Bay of Bengal. The paper reported on progress and highlighted potential for further safety and efficiency improvements through collaboration and the sharing of ADS-B data and VHF communications by States and ANSPs.

The CANSO Asia Pacific Safety and Operations Workgroups met in Fukuoka, Japan for their bi-annual meeting hosted by JANS. A total of 41 participants from 14 ANSPs attended, discussing regional collaboration and best practices. The workgroups identified potential projects including collaboration in system wide information management (SWIM) demonstration and operations performance analysis.

In line with its objective to encourage ANSPs in Asia Pacific to work closely with airports on A-CDM implementation and integration with ATFM, CANSO participated in an ICAO APAC A-CDM Task Force meeting held in Hong Kong. CANSO contributed the A-CDM survey questionnaire for the Asia Pacific region, analysed the responses and presented the outcome.

In December, CANSO participated in the ICAO Asia & Pacific Regional Aviation Security Conference on the new Global Aviation Security Plan (GASeP) in Bangkok. The Conference agreed on an APAC Aviation Security Roadmap, covering priorities including cyber security and emerging risks associated with remotely piloted aircraft systems (RPAS). CANSO highlighted the CANSO Cyber Security and Risk Assessment Guide and the importance of human factors and the need for a strong security culture.
