FAA selects FREQUENTIS for digitlisation of air ground communications


The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has awarded Frequentis a contract to implement the air-to-ground protocol converter system (APCS) for the U.S. National Airspace System, which supports over one billion passengers per year.

The APCS will replace the existing radio control equipment in the NAS. Migrating from the current analogue and time division multiplexing (TDM) communication to digital internet protocol (IP) communication has many benefits including enhanced communication, improved surveillance, increased efficiency, and added security. These are crucial in an industry where communication is key to ensuring the safety and efficiency of air travel.
