    Posted by Sean Broderick 12:46 PM on Sep 03, 2009

    RTCA is accepting comments on planned revisions two NextGen-related standards documents that will form the basis of related FAA TSOs.

    The first is RTCA Document DO-282A, Minimum Operational Performance Standards for Universal Access Transceiver (UAT) Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast (ADS-B), which will become the Minimum Performance Standard (MPS) for the proposed revised TSO-C154c.
    The second is RTCA Document DC-260A, Minimum Operational Performance Standards for 1090 MHz Extended Squitter Automatic Dependent
    Surveillance - Broadcast (ADS-B) and Traffic Information Service - Broadcast (TIS-B), which will be the foundation of TSO-166b.

    Comments are due to RTCA by Sept. 30. For instructions on how to comment,  see this notice (.pdf) for draft DO-282B, and this notice (.pdf) for draft DO-260B. More information on the subsequent TSOs is available here.
