This module is common with the equivalent module from AGCSE Master - AVI11 Communication Systems
This formation covers the analysis of the aeronautical communication requirements (Air Traffic Management, Aircraft operation and passenger communications) , the current technical solutions and their evolutions requiring new innovative technical solutions.
Engineers and executives.
Basic knowledge in communication networks.
1. Introduction , History , context of the Aeronautical communications.
This course deals with in particular :
The air/ground voice communications, the current technologies (25 kHz, 8.33 kHz, HF voice, Satellite voice) and their evolutions.
The current Datalink technology based on ACARS (Airline Communication, Addressing and Reporting System) protocols and the key applications of the ATM domain,
ATN (Aeronautical Telecommunication Network) that makes up the air/ground common data transport layer,
The various sub-networks that could be inter-connected through the ATN : VDL mode 2 , Satellite D/L , HF D/L,
The main air/ground data-link services (or applications) that have been defined at ICAO level (CPDCL, ADS, ..) and their deployment foreseen in Europe (Link 2000+ programme),
The evolution of the key ground/ground data communications services in the perspective of usage of native IP network service,
The topics of “Radio Spectrum Management” will be also explored,
Hands-on in aeronautical communications that will be covered in course , will be organised.
