4 4 National Airspace System Transition to Digital Communications Dem/Val Analog Voice, 25 KHz Initial Datalink (VDL-2) Full Operational Evaluation & Exercise of Digital Voice and Datalink (VDL-3) Next 5 years VDL-2 Datalink Analog Voice 5-10 years Maintain Terminal Analog Voice Implement VDL-3 Digital Voice Expand Datalink VDL-2 Applications Enroute High Airspace National Airspace RCAG ARTCC VDL-3 Link years Expand Enroute Digital Voice (VDL-3) Initiate Terminal Digital Voice (VDL-3) Increase Datalink Capacity & Capability (VDL-2 & VDL-3) Terminal Airspace years Expand Digital Voice (VDL-3) to all domains Expand Datalink Capacity in all domains and all applications (VDL-2 & VDL-3) AFSS

5 5 NAS Data Link Transition FAA views VDL Mode 2 and VDL Mode 3 as complementary, not competing technologies CPDLC initially will be fielded on VDL-2 –Only viable technology in required time ( ) –Stepping stone for data link use in air traffic control –FAA pays ATC message charges CPDLC available on VDL-3 in 2012 –Potential for other applications (e.g. weather) on VDL-3 Datalink applications still available to VDL-2 service providers –Users would pay any associated message charges VDL-2 remains essential for the purpose it was developed –AOC and other air traffic management functions –FAA does not plan to provide AOC-type information on VDL-3

6 6 International Harmonization FAA strongly supports the 1995 ICAO COM/OPS/DIV decision for digital, TDMA-based voice and data link as the future air/ground communications technology
