Abstract:

This report presents the results of a study to investigate the suitability of the DABS to support airline industry private communications between aircraft in flight and ground operations. The present, proposed near future, and possible future communication traffic is identified. DABS models for uplink traffic, downlink traffic, and message scheduling are developed and exercised over a broad spectrum of conditions for both en route and terminal area communications. A simulation is performed to determine the probable delays due to queuing for the various levels of implementation and with various numbers of aircraft. Author
