Abstract

The current generation digital network that is being used to transport packet data between the cockpit of a commercial aircraft and other entities such as the ATC (air traffic controllers) and the AOCs (airline operation center such as United, or America West, etc.) is rapidly evolving. The present character-based protocol is quickly becoming obso- lete by the introduction of ATM into the network.
