2 FAA Presentation to CAR/SAM ATN/GNSS Seminar, Varadero, Cuba, May 2002 The objective of this brief presentation is to describe the outline of the FAA Controller Pilot Data Link Programme, the changes brought about by the September 11th 2001 disaster, and the current status of the programme Presentation Objectives

3 FAA Presentation to CAR/SAM ATN/GNSS Seminar, Varadero, Cuba, May 2002 FAA CPDLC Programme - An Overview (1) FAA initially planned a three-stage approach to the introduction of ATN-based Controller Pilot Data link Communications into US domestic and oceanic airspace - CPDLC Build 1 - Extremely limited message set - 4 routine, workload significant messages at one ARTCC; CPDLC Build 1A - An additional 5 messages introducing tactical control, implemented at 23 ARTCCs; and CPDLC Build 2 - A realistic implementation of an operational message set, with the option to add usage of additional messages from the CPDLC message set as demand increased

4 FAA Presentation to CAR/SAM ATN/GNSS Seminar, Varadero, Cuba, May 2002 Pre September CPDLC Build 1 Plan Prior to September 2001, the CPDLC Build 1 program read like this……. On track for implementation of system into Miami ARTCC in June 2002, complying with ICAO SARPS Version 1 4 Services to be implemented  Transfer of Communications  Initial Contact  Altimeter setting  Pre-defined Message Text American Airlines the launch airline

5 FAA Presentation to CAR/SAM ATN/GNSS Seminar, Varadero, Cuba, May 2002 …...and the CPDLC Build 1A program read like this - 5 additional services to be implemented  Assigned Speed  Heading  Assigned Altitude  Route Clearance, and,  Pilot downlink Implementation of system into the first of 23 En-route Centres (planned for June 2003) was in the midst of a re- scheduling/re-budgeting exercise which would have led to slippage to December 2003, with completion in Pre September CPDLC Build 1A Plan

6 FAA Presentation to CAR/SAM ATN/GNSS Seminar, Varadero, Cuba, May 2002 The CPDLC Build 2 program development plan had been defined, with initial implementation targeted at 2008, although there was no FAA baseline program established. Pre September CPDLC Build 2 Plan

12 FAA Presentation to CAR/SAM ATN/GNSS Seminar, Varadero, Cuba, May 2002 Revised CPDLC Build 1 Plan …Continued Same 5 additional services to be implemented  Assigned Speed  Heading  Assigned Altitude  Route Clearance, and,  Pilot downlink ICAO SARPS Version 2 compliant Compatible with but improvement on Eurocontrol Extended PETAL trials

13 FAA Presentation to CAR/SAM ATN/GNSS Seminar, Varadero, Cuba, May 2002 The CPDLC Build 2 program development plan is currently sitting on the back burner, pending successful initial implementation of Build 1A plans. No FAA funding is currently approved for this program. Post September Revised CPDLC Build 2 Plan

15 FAA Presentation to CAR/SAM ATN/GNSS Seminar, Varadero, Cuba, May 2002 CPDLC Build 1 Status …Continued Decision point in September 2002 will indicate whether to proceed to Initial Daily Use (IDU) for Build 1 Expectation is that criteria will be met to continue operations of Build 1 beyond September 2002 System will remain in Miami until replaced by CPDLC Build 1A

16 FAA Presentation to CAR/SAM ATN/GNSS Seminar, Varadero, Cuba, May 2002 CPDLC Build II Status All FAA effort on the Build II program has stopped FAA priority is to get Build 1A back on track before consideration of follow-on program Build 2 could develop as add-ons to Build 1A

17 FAA Presentation to CAR/SAM ATN/GNSS Seminar, Varadero, Cuba, May 2002 CPDLC - The Future FAA (and its partners) committed to ATN-based CPDLC development and implementation. Additional ‘High Benefit’ messages are being assesed as possible augmentation to Build 1A post completion of the 23-Centre implementation Technical refreshment to bring the system up to SARPs Version 3 standard, including Security.
