  • UPDATE: Aviation Week & Space Technology--Global ATM Feb. 11
    Posted by Lee Ann Tegtmeier 2:03 PM on Jan 11, 2013

    Here's an update: The AW&ST Feb. 11 international air traffic management package will examine new ATM developments in the North Atlantic oceanic airspace. This airspace covers some of the world’s most important long-haul traffic flows, and ATM stakeholders are exploring ways to boost safety and efficiency. Boeing, the FAA, Nav Canada, the European Union, the U.K.’s NATS, Isavia and Naviair all have major initiatives underway to improve procedures and technology.

    The package also will feature Canada’s controller-pilot data link communication (CPDLC) program. This will be the most extensive deployment yet for this important technology, with allows pilots and controllers to communicate via text instead of voice.

    Another story will focus on the Australian ADS-B program, which will have the world’s first aircraft equipage mandate entering force at the end of this year.

    Finally, new CANSO Director General Jeff Poole will offer his thoughts on challenges facing the global ATM industry.

    This issue of Aviation Week is timed to coincide with CANSO’s World ATM Congress in Madrid on Feb. 12-14.
