Abstract:

A requirement for the National Airspace System NAS is to provide for communications, as identified in the NAS System Requirement Specification, NAS-SR-1000 NASSRS. This document presents a concept of operation for air- ground, ground-ground communications connectivity and capability, and national emergency communications. This concept describes the capabilities and shows the relationships between subsystems, facilities, information, and operatorsusers. It is intended to provide a common perspective for personnel involved in communication activities, assist in determining whether communications meet formal requirements, and support coordination among the organizations involved. This concept describes communications as specified in paragraph 3.6 of the NASSRS including paragraphs 3.6.1, 3.6.2, 3.6.3, and 3.6.4. This concept is one of eight operational concepts. The remaining yet to be written concepts will complete the description of the system requirements as detailed in the NASSRS. The eight operational concepts are Communications NAS-SR-136 Navigation NAS-SR-134 Monitoring NAS-SR-133 Maintenance and Support NAS-SR-137 System Effectiveness NAS-SR-138 Air Defense NAS-SR-135 Flight Planning NAS-SR-131 and Support of Military Operation NAS-SR-3.2.10.
