    TRAVELERS could experience quicker landings in future even as Changi Airport handles a growing number of flights.

    The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) is studying the feasibility of using satellite-based technology to guide aircraft to land, The Straits Times has learnt.

    Unlike the current system, which uses radio signals, the new technology is more precise.

    Planes can be pinpointed more accurately, so air traffic controllers can bring aircraft closer together without compromising safety standards.

      I think ADSB is more or less mandatory in Singapore air space.
