ARINC VDL Mode 2

2001 Deployment Activities


Vdl mode 2 service and ground station roll out
VDL Mode 2 Service and Ground Station Roll-Out

  • Initial Operational Capability Established

  • 2001 Deployment Activities Encompasses:

    • Installing over 80 VDL retrofit kits for currently deployed VDL-capable ground stations

    • Beginning deployment of over 90 new ACARS/VDL operational ground stations

      • Over 20 retrofit kits fabricated to date

    • Deploying Air/Ground Routers/Regional Managers (AGRMs)

    • Establishing VDL Mode 2 ATN IOC capability

  • 2001 Deployment Coverage

    • Continental US focus is en-route cloud and CPDLC coverage

    • Europe focus is cloud to support Airbus VDL production certification

VDL Mode 2Service and Ground Station Roll-Out

  • VDL Ground Station Deployment Approach

    • Long lead parts ordered and fabrication underway

    • Operational testing underway to ensure smooth implementation (especially at high volume “critical” airports)

    • Begin deployment at @ 20 ground stations per month in 2Q01 with the following focus:

      • VDL kits for already deployed VDL-upgradeable ground stations

      • New VDL ground stations for Miami airspace and to fill in holes in en-route VDL coverage

Summary
Summary

  • One Big Milestone Accomplished and Several To Go in 2001

    • VDL Mode 2 Is Reality Now

  • The Focus of 2001 is:

    • PETAL

    • Deploying VDL Mode 2 ATN capability for AOC and CPDLC

    • Expanding VDL Mode 2 Coverage

    • Continuing to Work with Industry for VDL Mode 2 Air/Ground Interoperability
