Cost-effective solutions to manage critical aviation communications

Today’s smart aircraft are capable of generating more aircraft and engine information than ever before. Even in the COVID-19 world, it’s likely that this increase in ACARS data volume will continue.

This webinar will explore significant improvements in the use of data-link communications – and what this means for ANSPs and airlines.

In this free webinar, you will learn:

  • How to maximize and extend the value of VHF for ops-critical AOC and safety services CPDLC
  • How ongoing investments in VHF for safety and ops-critical AOC can continue to drive fuel savings and airspace-use efficiencies
  • Cost-effective solutions to collaboratively preserve the valuable, protected VHF safety service spectrum and derive long-term benefits
  • About next-generation initiatives that leverage VHF and other emerging communications technologies such as ACARS over IP (AoIP), Advanced VDL (A-VDL) and Internet Protocol Suite (IPS)
