  2. Agenda DCL Trials Overview Activities Trials Stakeholders End to End Architecture Functional and Operational Test Activity DCL Trials Timeline / sites 2

  3. DCL Trials Overview DCL – Data Communications Departure Clearance Service: Initial and revised clearances to participating FANS equipped aircraft Data Comm Trials Automation Platform (DTAP) – Standalone application end system w/ Controller CHI Flight Deck logs on via AFN service, and Initiates the Clearance Request (DM25) Uplinked Route information is auto-loadable into Flight Deck FMS Flight Deck can Wilco, Standby, Unable uplinked messages AOCs receive real time copies of messages uplinked to flight deck (AOC responds with Gate info) MEM, EWR, ATL selected to host DCL Trials: FAA, NATCA and industry participation in site selections Trials expected to run for 1 year under Test NCP’s DTAP independent of current Tower Data Link Services (TDLS)

  4. Data Comm Implementation Team (DCIT) established Jan 2011 Members include operators, FAA reps, automation system manufacturers, research organizations, NATCA, Communication Service Providers, avionics manufacturers, aircraft manufacturers, as well as support contractors Working Groups for DCIT: Management, AOC, Flight Deck, and Systems Integration Three trials sites and leading partners are: Memphis/FedEx, Newark/United-Continental, Atlanta/Delta MOUs in process to include Union participation Additional sites possible, as necessary DCL Trials Activities

  5. DCL Trials Stakeholders DCIT Committee Aircraft operator participants ANSP participants Aircraft Manufacturers Data Comm Service Providers Ground systems suppliers Avionics suppliers Airline and controller unions Focus of DCL trials De-risking the operational DCL system Clarifying and validating system requirements Verifying benefits
