  • Data Link (DLK) Users Forum
    Feb 04 - 06, 2020
    Palm Bay, Florida

    The Data Link Users Forum (DLUF) facilitates coordination among  industry stakeholders to improve Air Traffic Services (ATS) and Aeronautic  Operational Control communications between the aircraft and the ground  networks. DLUF topics include tracking upcoming global ATS programs and mandates, discussing issues plaguing Controller Pilot Data Link Communications  (CPDLC) operations, monitoring system performance/operational trials, and identifying new air-ground data link opportunities.

  • Timely Recovery of Flight Data (TRFD) Working Group
    Feb 10 - 12, 2020
    Coral Gables, Florida

    The goal of the TRFD Working Group is to prepare standards applicable to the ICAO Global Aeronautical Distress and Safety System (GADSS). These are intended to preserve flight data recorder information by transmitting it prior to an accident or safeguarding it on a deployable recorder.

  • Systems Architecture and Interfaces (SAI) Subcommittee
    Feb 12 - 14, 2020
    Coral Gables, Florida

    The Systems  Architecture and Interfaces (SAI) Subcommittee will prepare avionics  system-level guidance for new airplanes and major retrofit programs. It will  discuss NextGen and SESAR programs and the impact on Communication, Navigation,  and Surveillance (CNS) equipment.

  • Software Distribution and Loading (SDL) Subcommittee
    Mar 03 - 04, 2020
    Spokane, Washington

    The SDL Subcommittee’s objective is to develop standards for software distribution and loading. This includes continued development of high-speed data loaders, high-density storage media, and loading protocols. The SDL Subcommittee prepares and updates standards for file format, media type, part numbering, distribution, and terminology. This subcommittee also defines the interfaces between the software data loader and the target hardware. The SDL Subcommittee sets standard formats for Loadable Software Parts (LSPs) so that all the requirements of configuration management of LSPs may be accomplished.
