IMPLEMENTATION OF SATELLITE-BASED SYSTEMS FOR CIVIL AVIATION IN THE 21ST CENTURY

The paper describes the satellite based systems that have been installed and implemented at the Hong Kong International Airport at Chek Lap Kok. The systems are known as the satellite based Communications, Navigation and Surveillance/Air Traffic Management (CNS/ATM) systems. The functions of the various systems are described. The direct and indirect benefits attributed to the CNS/ATM systems include enhancement of flight safety, increase in airspace capacity, savings in flight time and fuel, as well as reduction in disruption to air service arising from adverse weather.
