Starburst Aerospace and Aviation Innovation Research (AIR) Lab joined forces to launch the AIR Lab Innovation Challenge at Singapore Airshow 2024. The collaborative initiative aims to source innovative solutions from global startups within the Air Traffic Management (ATM) domain.

“Recognizing the pivotal role of innovation in keeping pace with the ever-expanding sustainable aviation industry, we are excited to continue building on our valued partnership with AIR Lab with the launch of this innovation challenge,” said Julius Yeo, Managing Director of Starburst Singapore.

“Starburst aspires to be an agent of positive change by creating opportunities for these early-stage players who are building technologies that will revolutionize the management and monitoring of our air spaces. We’re honored to co-lead this initiative and support next-generation startups on their journey to commercial success.”

Chris Lee, Deputy Director of AIR Lab, shared that AIR Lab is excited to continue working with Starburst to engage more with startups building technologies with potential for deployment in the ATM domain.

“AIR Lab and Starburst will also explore partnership opportunities with startups through a research marketplace to facilitate the adoption and application of innovative ATM solutions. Through this initiative, we hope to establish a broader local ecosystem of partners that can help accelerate the use of cutting-edge ATM solutions for Singapore and the wider region,” said Lee.

Starburst and AIR Lab are set to host the first run of the innovation challenge during The Singapore Airshow in February of 2024, during which five pre-selected global startups will pitch their products, technologies, and/or solutions for the opportunity to be selected for a POC with AIR Lab.
