ATN99 International ConferencePage - 422-23 September 1999 London EXISTING CAPABILITIES Fleet Wide ACARS (about 600 aircraft) SATCOM on Oceanic 747,767 & 777 747-400 and 777 FANS-1 Operational in Asia/Pacific Region Pre-Operational in North Atlantic Region PETAL II Participant
ATN99 International ConferencePage - 522-23 September 1999 London IMPLEMENTATION OPTIONS Fleet Wide Implementation of ATN and VM2/SD3 for AOC & ATC Applications Possible Implementation Phases: ACARS (VMA, SD2, HF/DLS) VM2/AOA ATN for AOC with Ground System Upgrade CM/CPDLC ADS and FIS/ATIS Other Bit Oriented Applications TBD
ATN99 International ConferencePage - 622-23 September 1999 London ATN & VM2 ENDORSEMENT United Airlines strongly supports the migration of Aeronautical Operational Control (AOC) from current ACARS directly to the ATN over VM2/SD3. This position is supported independently from our endorsement of ATN for Controller Pilot Data Link Communications (CPDLC). When United Airlines makes an investment decision for company data link operations, our decision will be to invest in ATN and VM2/SD3 avionics - Any interim step, such as ACARS over AVLC (AOA), will only be considered when ATN pricing and/or scheduling information is not available at the time of that decision.
