ICAO Regional Accident Investigation Workshop on 05 & 06 September 2012

ACSA has the honor to be invited by the ICAO Asia and Pacific Office and the Civil Aviation Authority of Macao, China to participate to the ICAO Regional Accident Investigation Workshop.
The objective of the Regional Workshop is to provide an opportunity for accident investigators within the Asia and Pacific Regions to share their expertise and experience with one another and share investigation best practice.

Over the Workshop, accident investigation cases will be presented by different States/ Administrations/Organizations and the program will also include presentations on topics of significant interest related to accident/incident investigation and prevention.

ACSA intervention will focus on Workshop Session 5: Sea Search Operations. Locating and recovering the flight recorders in the aftermath of a sea crash poses great challenges for safety investigators. This work session, based on ACSA’s extensive successful missions, aims to provide a perspective of the manpower, logistics and cost considerations of conducting a sea search & recovery operation. The new pre-localization system, DETECTOR-1000, and the famous one, GIB-SAR, as well as techniques for fast search and accurate positioning of black boxes in shallow and deep water will be introduced to the Asian experts.
