Due to the influence of Han-la Mountain which is located at the center of Jeju Island, a radar blind sector has been appearing in the south-east, low-altitude area of Jeju Island. Thus, the region is perilous for aircraft using surveillance in this area with the existing radar equipment that is currently available. In addition, as the popularity for domestic leisure aviation is on the rise, the safety in low-altitude area should be guaranteed. Where not only IFR flights but also VFR flights are mainly used. Therefore, immediate measures to the present state of radar blind sector in Jeju Island should be taken into serious account. Regarding the circumstances, this study's purpose is to help secure the aviation safety in Jeju region by analyzing the current air traffic surveillance system in Jeju Island and comprehending its vulnerable factors. Moreover, this study compares secondary radar surveillance system, ADS-B and MLAT(Multilateration) system with factors based on the guidance materials from ICAO Asia and Pacific region office to suggests an adequate surveillance technology considering the regional characteristics of Jeju.
