Abstract:

The Federal Aviation Administration FAA CoderDecoder CODEC Test Program will determine the suitability of low data rate digitized voice via a satellite link for air traffic control ATC applications. A primary concern of the FAA in assessing low data rate CODECs will be to minimize satellite bandwidth and power requirements while achieving acceptable voice performance. The final results of the FAA CODEC test plan will be analyzed and a recommendation of a low data rate voice CODEC for ATC communications will be proposed for inclusion to the Aeronautical Mobile Satellite Service AMSS. The FAA CODEC testing will support the validation of Standards and Recommended Practices SARPS, prepared by the International Civil Aviation Organization ICAO, as well as Minimal Operational Performance Standards MOPS, developed by the Radio Technical Commission for Aeronautics RTCA, for AMSS voice communications. rrh
