The International Air Transport Association (IATA) and the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) have announced the signing of a Memorandum of Collaboration (MoC) to establish a Global Safety Predictive Analytics Research Center (SPARC) in Singapore.

The MoC was signed by Alexandre de Juniac, IATA's Director General and CEO, and Kevin Shum, Director-General of CAAS.

SPARC will utilise predictive analytics to identify potential aviation safety hazards and assess related risks by leveraging the research capabilities in Singapore, and operational flight data and safety information that are available under IATA's Global Aviation Data Management (GADM) initiative. End users across the aviation community can then work collaboratively at the system level to address and implement appropriate safety measures to mitigate the risks, or even to prevent the occurrences of safety hazards, according to IATA press release yesterday.
