The topics include securing wireless electronic-enabled airplane applications at airports: challenges and approaches, a novel approach for securing air-ground communication
, a vehicle health monitoring system using a secure wireless sensor network, wireless and flexible ice detection on aircraft, and a lightweight spatio-temporarily partitioned multicore architecture for the concurrent execution of safety critical workloads.
These include more sophisticated FAC aircraft, improved communication vehicles and radios for use by the forward air controllers, new lightweight radar and ancillary support equipment, and compact air-ground communication
However, air-ground communication
was poor, and after the battle, steps were taken to improvise air liaison parties (ALP).
The indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract awarded to General Dynamics in April 2012 is part of the FAA's Next Generation Air-Ground Communications
(NEXCOM) Segment 2 program.
"As the nation's airspace gets increasingly crowded, these radios have the built-in flexibility to accommodate the growing demand for high-quality, dependable ground-to-air communications."EE The contract is part of the FAA's Next Generation Air-Ground Communications
(NEXCOM) Segment 2 program which includes replacing outmoded air traffic control (ATC) air-to-ground radios with radios using the latest in communications technology.
With SESAR, a range of advanced technologies will be deployed, both embedded and on the ground, to improve air-ground communications
and flight management.
Air China also recently signed a strategic agreement with China Telecom, which will allow the two companies to cooperate in product development, IT, air-ground communications
, marketing and customer service.
Under the terms of the agreement the two companies will cooperate in marketing, product development and innovation, information technology, air-ground communications
, 3G applications and customer service.
What you will learn: the functionality of the ICAO ATC data link applications; air-ground communications
using the ATN Internet; ACARS and how it is being replaced by VDL Mode 2 for both AOC and ATC applications; the basic functionality of each of the four VDL Modes, the ICAO Aeronautical Satellite Communications System (AMSS), the HF data link and the Mode S data link; products and services that are available and being developed.
