The GNSS Implementation Plan Training in ASEAN
The GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) using Space Satellite System, standardised by International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), has been introduced in several countries of the world as a redundancy of conventional ground-based navigation system. In order to implement GNSS in the ASEAN region fluently, the human resources development who would be in charge of optimized implementation planning with understanding significance of GNSS would be an important challenge.
The GNSS Implementation Plan Training in ASEAN (GIPTA) project supported by the Government of Japan through the Japan-ASEAN Integration Fund (JAIF) aimed at staff training of engineers and administrative officials in ASEAN nations who would be in charge of development of implementation plan for the realisation of safe and economic GNSS implementation that would be operated with joint cooperative works in ASEAN region. This project also aims for relevant ASEAN civil aviation personnel to obtain knowledge and skills for introduction plan of Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) starting from year 2020. After this training, safe, efficient, reliable and cost-effective air navigation service provided by GNSS is expected to be ready in ASEAN region as a whole.
