NCS showcases innovative aviation, game-like visualisation and 3D solutions at Singapore Airshow 2008

Singapore, January 18, 2008

NCS Group’s subsidiary, NCS Communications Engineering, a leading provider in communication engineering solutions and services for over 50 years, today announced that together with its partners, it will be showcasing innovative aviation, game-like visualisation and 3D solutions at Singapore Airshow 2008 from 19 February to 24 February at the all-new Changi Exhibition Centre, Singapore.

The Singapore Airshow is Asia's largest aerospace and defence event, serving as a global marketplace and networking platform for the military and civil aviation community. NCS’ booth is located at Airport Pavilion, Booth 503.

NCS has been providing comprehensive airport and infrastructural solutions and services to the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) from the 1950s at the Kallang Airport to today’s Changi Airport Terminal 3.  We have also assisted airport operators in the region to facilitate efficient and reliable air traffic control, communications and security including Singapore Changi Airport – one of the best airports in the world.

At the exhibition, NCS and its partner, HITT Traffic will be showcasing the aviation solutions. HITT's A3000 Advanced Surface Movement Guidance and Control System (A‑SMGCS) ensures the highest level of safety at airports in accordance with ICAO and Euro control regulations. To improve the capacity, efficiency and economy at an airport, its new web-based product suite Airport Insight will be showcased. Both systems use innovative technologies to facilitate the airport stakeholders in providing a safe and efficient ground movement. Among the long list of references of HITT are Changi Airport, Shanghai Pudong Airport, Frankfurt Airport, and Amsterdam Airport.

Also on display are surveillance solutions for port security and coastal surveillance. The Gatekeeper panoramic infrared sensor provides a 120 degree panoramic view, combined with panoramic High Definition CCTV views for maximum detection of suspect targets.  The coastal surveillance demonstration shows laser gated cameras that are automatically controlled by radar, giving unsurpassed surveillance capabilities, especially in poor visibility.

NCS will also be presenting an immersive game-like visualisation system that shows realistic 3D modelling useful for the E.A.S.E. (Experimentation, Analysis, Simulation and Evaluation) domain.  An interactive 3-D platform that is highly customisable with additional user-specific features will also be on display. It enables most complicated 3-D models to be readily integrated and presented in a real-time running environment, and can be used for large-scale city planning, defence and crisis management.  Key benefits include in-depth operation and deployment planning capabilities; collaboration between different departments for routine resources or emergency and disaster recovery decision making; and formulation of security strategies and operational procedures between different units.

NCS, Spatial View’s authorised distributor in the Asia Pacific and Middle East regions, will be exhibiting a host of Spatial View’s leading edge auto-stereo 3D solutions and products at the exhibition.   Spatial View’s auto-stereo displays enable the presentation of 3D rich content of all types in full dimensionality, without the need for 3D glasses. In addition to the glasses-free 3D screens, visitors will also be able to preview the Spatial View 3D Software Suite, designed for the quick preparation of 3D models and content from today's most popular graphical applications for 3D/stereo display.

“The Singapore Airshow 2008 is a good platform for us to showcase solutions in areas like aviation and defence. We are pleased to be bringing these innovative solutions through strategic partnering with some of the world’s leading companies in their fields. With our domain knowledge, proven track record and strategic relationship with world class partners, our customers can be assured of effective and innovative solutions and products using most recent technologies to their benefits, that meet their needs as well as a high level of service,” said Lim Yew Seng, Chief, NCS Communications Engineering.
