• Internet Protocol Suite (IPS) for Aeronautical Safety Services
    Dec 10 - 13, 2019
    Brussels, Belgium

    The IPS Subcommittee is leading the development of industry standards for the Internet Protocol Suite for aeronautical safety services. This includes airborne, ground-based, and space-based communication systems. It is coordinating aviation Standards Development Organizations (SDOs), Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs), and others with an interest. This activity initiated by APIM 15-004A. 

  • European FSTD Technical Group (EFTeG)
    Dec 17 - 18, 2019
    Cologne, Germany

    The European FSTD Technical Group (EFTeG) was chartered as a result of feedback from recent FSEMC conferences. The flight simulation industry perceived a need for a forum for simulator operators that are subject to EASA regulations to discuss technical issues. This forum is also intended for EASA flight simulation regulatory representatives to discuss regulatory qualification and compliance questions with operators.

  • Aeronautical Operational Control (AOC) Subcommittee
    Jan 14 - 17, 2020
    Coral Gables, Florida

    The goal of this activity is to specify the exchange and format of air to ground and ground to air Aeronautical Operational Communications (AOC) messages. The AOC Standard simplifies the integration of AOC applications from different suppliers, for different airplane types, that are not controlled by the airlines. These messages may be hosted on an Electronic Flight Bag (EFB).

  • Ku/Ka Band Satellite (KSAT) Subcommittee
    Jan 21 - 23, 2020
    Carlsbad, California

    The goal of this activity is to develop and maintain Ku-band and Ka-band satellite communication systems that meet operators’ high-performance requirements. The equipment specified in these ARINC Standards are typically used to provide passenger data, video, and voice communication services.

  • Network Infrastructure and Security (NIS) Subcommittee
    Jan 21 - 23, 2020
    Carlsbad, California

    The objectives of the meeting are to:

    1. Continue development of ARINC Project Paper 848: Broadband Network Interface for Non-Safety Services
    2. Continue development of ARINC Project Paper 686: Roadmap for IPv6 Transition in Aviation (Tentative)
    3. Continue development of ARINC Project Paper 687: Onboard Secure Wi-Fi Network Profile
    4. Continue development of ARINC Project Paper 688: Intersystem Network Infrastructure
  • Future Concepts for Simulators (FCS) Subcommittee
    Jan 21 - 22, 2020
    Hapeville, Georgia

    The meeting is focused on the process of software releases from TDMs, OEMs, and suppliers to Flight Simulation Training Device (FTD) operators, airlines, and training centers.


  • Test Program Set (TPS) Quality Working Group
    Jan 21 - 23, 2020
    Schiphol, Netherlands

    The aim of this project is to update the ARINC Report 625-3 to emphasize the importance that the OEM provides a Test Specification that is intelligible, unobscured, and complete as possible.

  • Air Transport - Avionics Service Bulletin (AT-ASB) Harmonization Working Group
    Jan 28 - 30, 2020
    Seattle, Washington

    The industry wants clarity to drive consistency between airframers and suppliers, so SBs are the same. The goal of the ARINC Standards guidance document is reduce the variances so that all SBs have the same look and feel. The working group will continue from the last meeting’s developing guidance to reduce any ambiguity.

  • 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.

  • Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) Subcommittee
    Feb 04 - 06, 2020
    Clearwater, Florida

    The EFB Subcommittee develops ARINC Standards that enable standardized EFB installation and connectivity on all types of aircraft. The standards are comprised of both hardware and software specifications and apply to interfaces, wiring and connectors, data protocols, and application control.
