The theme of the 28th International Seminar on Aviation Safety Facilities held at the Grand Hyatt Incheon on Nov. 12 was how to build a Korean-style navigation system using innovative technologies such as AI and drones.

At the event, Hwang Soon-ha, an official in charge of navigation facilities at the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport, made a presentation on policy trends at home and abroad.

Hwang’s presentation was followed by presentations and discussions on various topics related to the operation of next-generation navigation systems, including a presentation on the establishment of a future navigation system to cope with the era of wide gaps among airports.
