Pagination or Media Count:
This document describes the validation process of a satellite data link which will be conducted by the Federal Aviation Administration FAA technical Center. Aircraft equipped with satellite communication avionics will relay progress reports through a satellite to a ground earth station GES. These will be compared directly to voice reports made using high-frequency HF radio. The results of the comparisons between the different links will be used to determine the suitability of satellite communication as a replacement for HF for oceanic air traffic control.
