1000 guests came together in the Hong Kong Asia World-Expo on 14DEC23 to witness the signing of a collaboration agreement between Dr. Angus Cheung, CEO of Aerovision Technology Limited (ATL), and Wilson Kwong, Chief Executive of Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals Limited (Hactl). Michael Wong Wai-lun, Deputy Financial Secretary of HKSAR Government and Cui Xiaofeng, Deputy Administrator of Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) were also present. The agreement will see Hactl’s SuperTerminal 1 be equipped with ATL’s patented intelligent cargo thermal detection system, making it the first in the world to deploy the innovative technology designed to ensure the safe handling of air cargo and aviation safety. A huge step in the heart of Lithium Battery transportation. The system combines advanced thermal imaging technology, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, data analytics, and artificial intelligence, to enable real-time temperature monitoring of different cargo materials in various environments and swiftly identify and alert to any abnormal conditions, thus helping to prevent potential fire risks.

Richard Wu, Deputy Director-General of Civil Aviation Department (CAD), stated: “Hong Kong International Airport is one of the busiest cargo and passenger airports in the world, with air cargo volume consistently ranking among the top globally for years. CAD shoulders the dual roles of aviation safety promoter and regulator. It has always encouraged the air transport logistics industry to be risk-based and is pleased to see locally invented innovative technology being adopted to further enhance the safety and reliability of air cargo handling in relation to the growth of e-commerce in Hong Kong.

Angus Cheung, CEO of ATL, commented: “Many thanks to the Civil Aviation Department for providing important direction on this innovative research and development project. The collaboration between ATL and Hactl is exemplary [and] important in maintaining Hong Kong’s position as the world’s busiest air cargo airport and will also set the new standard for safe handling of air cargo in future.”

Wilson Kwong, Hactl’s Chief Executive, said: “Hactl’s SuperTerminal 1 is the single largest air cargo terminal globally and an essential part of Hong Kong’s air cargo industry. We are committed to continuous development through the adoption of innovative technologies. This collaboration with ATL will introduce new cargo thermal detection technology to our terminal, further improving the reliability of cargo inspection, contributing to aviation safety, and strengthening the operational resilience of our terminal. It also sets a new benchmark for the air cargo industry.”
