12:05 | 04/05/2018

VGP - Japan Radio Co. Ltd and the Viet Nam Air Traffic Management Corporation (VATM)  have signed an agreement worth JPY200 million in non-refundable aid to provide, install, monitor and transfer multilateration (MLAT) technology at Phu Quoc international airport.

According, as part of the 2018 – 2019 project, the Japanese side will offer training courses to transfer technology and hold seminars on MLAT technology in Ha Noi and Phu Quoc, with staff from VATM, the Civil Authority of Vietnam and the Airports Corporation of Vietnam taking part.

MLAT technology has been developed to accurately locate aircraft in ground stations, local terminal areas or a wider area that covers the larger surrounding airspace in any weather conditions. It allows automation in processing information on flight activities and enhances the capacity of flight control at air traffic control stations.

Airports with high flight density in Europe, the U.S., Japan, the Republic of Korea and Singapore have adopted MLAT technology.

The airport will enable the island district, which now receives around 600,000 passengers per year by airplane, to become a center for tourism and services and connect it to other areas of Viet Nam as well as international destinations, which will increase trade.
