A new air traffic control centre equipped with a sophisticated control system worth more than $300 million has been launched here, amid fast growth in the region's aviation sector.

The Singapore Air Traffic Control Centre comes with the newly developed Lorads III system, which will improve Singapore's air traffic control capacity, said the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore.

Features of the system include smoother digital information displays, back-up capabilities in case of failure and improved sensors for better aerial surveillance.
