The ‘Innovation in Air Transport’ webinar held on 11 Nov 2021 was co-organised with Starburst Aerospace. Mr Julius Yeo of Starburst introduced the session with a briefing on the progress of the Singapore Aviation Accelerator which graduated 8 start-ups from its inaugural cohort and is working with them on commercialization.

The accelerator aims to identify up to 13 startups a year for investment, business development and talent acquisition, putting them through a 90-day bootcamp. Focus areas include sustainability and green aviation, digitalization, data security, air cargo and logistics, enhancing of operations and infrastructure, and enhancing the passenger experience, and other technologies with potential synergies.

A highlight of the webinar was the presentation by Mr Paul Brady of CarbonClick, which has developed a carbon offset solution for airports, airlines and e-commerce platforms. While carbon offsetting has been around for some time, CarbonClick has simplified the process for consumers and removes the complexity of navigating the market to identify high quality, meaningful and verified projects.

This presentation was followed by a panel discussion with Mr Karthikeyan T. of SIA Engineering Company and Mr Alex Kasinec of Evitado Technologies, a start up from the first cohort of the Singapore Aviation Accelerator. Alex explained that Evitado was set up to automate airport ground operations to improve situation awareness, safety and efficiency. Evitado is working on a ground collision avoidance solution with SIA Engineering Company.
