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 2 2001 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 at @ 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
