1 Federal Aviation Administration International Civil Aviation Organization INFORMATION PAPER AERONAUTICAL COMMUNICATIONS PANEL (ACP) 16th MEETING OF WORKING GROUP M Paris, France 17 – 19 May 2010 Data Communications Program Status (Presented by: Andy Colon, FAA) SUMMARY This information paper is intended to provide status of on going activities within the FAA for the implementation of the Data Communications Program. ACP-WGM16/IP-xx May 2010 Agenda Item: 1x

2 Data Communications Program – Status ICAO ACP WG-M #16 – Paris, France 2 Agenda Data Comm Objectives Segment 1 and Segment 2 Services (Summary) FAA Acquisition Lifecycle Milestones & Activities (Leading to FID) Program Outreach DCNSD Acquisition Status Notional Architecture

3 Data Communications Program – Status ICAO ACP WG-M #16 – Paris, France 3 Data Comm Objectives Efficiency – enhance productivity of controllers and pilots –Examples services include: Revised Departure Clearances, Optimized Descents, Transfer of Communications Capacity – enable advanced operations to reduce resource needs –Examples services include: Initial Trajectory Based Operations, Conformance Management Safety – reduce communications errors related to voice –Examples services include: Addressed Clearances

4 Data Communications Program – Status ICAO ACP WG-M #16 – Paris, France 4 Segment 1 Services - Tower Planning acceleration of Revised Departure Clearances (DCL) in response to RTCA NextGen Task Force recommendations (S1P1) –Enables full route clearances and revisions –Exploits Future Air Navigation Systems (FANS) avionics found in newer aircraft –Will not impact existing services Digital Automatic Terminal Information Service (D-ATIS) up-links of airport weather, hazards, and restrictions to the aircraft (S1P2) –Requires Aeronautical Telecommunications Network (ATN) avionics

5 Data Communications Program – Status ICAO ACP WG-M #16 – Paris, France 5 Segment 1 Services - En Route Data link logon (DLL) service to provide a unique digital identification of every aircraft (S1P1) Initial use of Trajectory Clearances for continuous descent approaches (S1P2) Automatic ATC hand-off (ACM) data transmitted to aircraft identifying the radio frequency in use by the next air traffic control sector (S1P2)

6 Data Communications Program – Status ICAO ACP WG-M #16 – Paris, France 6 Segment 2 Services Continue Segment 1 services in Tower and En Route Extend Segment 1 services to TRACON Plus additional services: –Trajectory Based Operations in Performance Based Airspace, providing conflict-free flight with stable aircraft routing –Conformance Management to ensure aircraft compliance with trajectory –Optimized Profile Descents and time-based metering –NAS Airport status, delays and constraints, hazardous weather uplinked to the aircrew –Taxi-in / Taxi-out service provides taxi routes for aircraft to follow from the gate to the runway April 28, 2010
