NASA Teams with South Korean Agency to Further Improve ATM

NASA and the Korea Agency for Infrastructure Technology Advancement (KAIA) have signed a memorandum of understanding for future cooperation on the development of advanced air traffic management technologies, benefiting airline passengers and citizens of both nations.

The cooperation brings together two countries that have a mutual interest in advancing air transportation automation for the benefit of the aviation industry under the Next Generation Air Transportation System in the United States and the National Air Traffic Management Reformation and Enhancement program in South Korea.

Jaiwon Shin, NASA’s associate administrator for Aeronautics Research, and Jaeboong Lee, president of KAIA, signed the agreement Monday in Seoul, South Korea on behalf of their respective agencies.

“The United States and South Korea are close allies and strategic partners,” Shin said. “Our ability to work closely together will benefit each nation by optimizing air transportation operations to reduce delays, fuel consumption, noise, and emissions in airspace operating conditions.”

The agreement outlines the terms and conditions for a range of activities related to air traffic management that will advance air transportation automation for the mutual benefit of the global aviation industry.
