Advanced Air Traffic Systems (M) Sdn Bhd (AAT), was established on 30 April 1994 as a follow on to the implementation of the Malaysian Air Traffic Services Modernization Program (MATSMP) by the Malaysian Government beginning in 1992 undertaken by the Department of Civil Aviation (DCA). The fire incident that damaged the DCA Subang Terminal Approach Radar (STAR) in 1991 and the second fire incident that seriously affected the air traffic control (ATC) tower at Terminal 1, Subang International Airport in October 1992 also played a part towards the establishment of AAT.
The Malaysian Government awarded the MATSMP project to Alenia S.P.A of Italy. During the negotiation of the project, Malaysian Government has advised Alenia, as the supplier and original equipment manufacturer (OEM) of the newly purchased MATSMP ATC radar and system, to establish a local partner for the purpose of transferring relevant technology on air traffic control (ATC) radar in particular and air traffic management (ATM) systems in general to Malaysian local engineers and technicians. Following this, on 28 December 1993, a Partnership Agreement was signed between two local Malaysian companies namely, Airod Sdn Bhd (an Aviation MRO company) and Tahap Harmoni Sdn Bhd (an investment company) with Alenia S.P.A. of Italy, a well-known manufacturer and worldwide supplier of ATM systems.
