2 A 2 Overview u VDL Mode 2 Accomplishments to Date u VDL Mode 2 Development Activities u VDL Mode 2 Deployment Activities

3 A 3 GLOBALink VDL Mode 2 Progress Summary

4 A 4 ARINCs Overall VDL Mode 2 Progress Summary u Initial VDL AOA Operational Capability Deployed and Operational u VDL AOA AQP Capability Established u First Flight Successfully Accomplished u Boeing Black Label Certification Underway u Deployment Activities for VDL Coverage Expansion Underway u ATN Development Meeting Milestones

5 A 5 GLOBALink ARINC VDL Mode 2 Development Activities for 2001

6 A 6 VDL Mode 2 Program 2001 Development Activities u AOA Develop and deploy first maintenance release in June Enhance AQP capability Deployment RF test/analysis accomplished u Avionics Interoperability Testing for AOA and ATN Collins underway (AOA and ATN) Airbus/Aerospatiale underway for AOA Boeing type certification underway FAA interoperability tests underway (ATN) EuroControl PETAL tests underway (ATN ground/ground) Honeywell imminent (AOA) Teledyne imminent (AOA)

7 A 7 VDL Mode 2 Program 2001 Development Activities u ATN PETAL ­Software test near completion and fielded within the next 30 days –end-to-end CPDLC message delivery proven over the RF –AA 767 w/Collins CMU/ARINC ATN network/Maastricht ­5 of 6 Ground stations deployed in Europe ­2 AGRMs deployed in Europe ­ATN routers deployed ­Engineering network operations center established ­PETAL aircraft certification –Two AGTSs deployed and operational at Dallas- Fort Worth and Tulsa –Aircraft certification underway ­PETAL operational from May through October 01

8 A 8 VDL Mode 2 Program 2001 Development Activities u ATN Deployment Activities for Miami Airspace ­Coverage requirements defined with FAA and American Airlines ­Ground Stations fielded as part of AOA deployment in 2001 and early 2002 –additional Florida and Caribbean sites required ATN Service Operational in December 01 ­Will support CPDLC Build I and AOC needs ­ATN initially cut-over to limited geographical area ­Expansion to operational service cloud in Florida in early 02

9 A 9 GLOBALink ARINC VDL Mode Deployment Activities

10 A 10 VDL Mode 2 Service and Ground Station Roll-Out u Initial Operational Capability Established u 2001 Deployment Activities Encompasses: Installing over 80 VDL retrofit kits for currently deployed VDL- capable ground stations Beginning deployment of over 90 new ACARS/VDL operational ground stations ­Over 20 retrofit kits fabricated to date Deploying Air/Ground Routers/Regional Managers (AGRMs) Establishing VDL Mode 2 ATN IOC capability u 2001 Deployment Coverage Continental US focus is en-route cloud and CPDLC coverage Europe focus is cloud to support Airbus VDL production certification

11 A 11 VDL Mode 2 Service and Ground Station Roll-Out u VDL Ground Station Deployment Approach Long lead parts ordered and fabrication underway Operational testing underway to ensure smooth implementation (especially at high volume critical airports) Begin deployment 20 ground stations per month in 2Q01 with the following focus: ­VDL kits for already deployed VDL-upgradeable ground stations ­New VDL ground stations for Miami airspace and to fill in holes in en-route VDL coverage

12 A 12 Representative Planned Operational Coverage Currently Deployed VDL-Capable Ground Stations

13 A 13 Summary u One Big Milestone Accomplished and Several To Go in 2001 VDL Mode 2 Is Reality Now u The Focus of 2001 is: PETAL Deploying VDL Mode 2 ATN capability for AOC and CPDLC Expanding VDL Mode 2 Coverage Continuing to Work with Industry for VDL Mode 2 Air/Ground Interoperability
