Description

Event is FULL

The MITRE Corporation (MITRE) in partnership with the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS), has established an advanced technology research laboratory focused on Air Traffic Management in Singapore to meet the growing demand and unique challenges of the Asia Pacific region.  Air traffic in the Asia Pacific region is expected to triple by 2030. To help the region adapt to the rapidly accelerating demand, MITRE, in partnership with CAAS, has established a first-of-its-kind facility: MITRE Asia Pacific Singapore (MAPS). By introducing new aviation technologies and procedures, the facility will help enable Singapore and the region to maintain high levels of air safety and service.

The 10,000-square-foot facility features MITRE-developed real-time and fast-time simulation tools, including a cockpit simulator, wrap-around tower, area and approach air traffic controller workstations, and advanced traffic-flow management tools.
  As MITRE’s first aviation research and development center located outside the United States, the laboratory facilitates a long-term program of research, development, and technology transfer.  The initial focus of the office and laboratory is on air traffic management. However, the integrated facility will also be able to easily and securely connect to research simulation capabilities of other organizations. The ultimate goal is to create a collaborative environment for governments, industry, and academia to conduct joint research and analysis on a variety of global challenges.

Public parking is available in the lower level of the building, as well as across the street.

Spaces are limited, maximum 2 members per company. Priority will be given to members in the Aerospace & Defense committee.
