The newest version of EUROCAE (European Organization for Civil Aviation Equipment) ED-137 was recently approved. Part 1 of the documentation describes radio communications, while Part 2 covers telephone communications. The new documents now address the requirements of both European countries and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), thus ensuring their global applicability. Formal adoption by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) is already underway: ED-137 specifications will be included in the upcoming 2nd edition of ICAOs Manual for the ATN using IPS Standards and Protocols.
Over the last three years, extensive testing in field trials and live air traffic control environments has confirmed the usefulness and practicality of the ED-137 specifications. Impressive trials hosted recently by ISAVIA, Icelands Air Navigation Service Provider (ANSP), validated the specifications for commercial air traffic in live operations.
Frequentis is the first ATM system supplier to provide its communication products on the basis of EUROCAE WG-67 specifications.
Frequentis supports the major research and specification activities defining future communication concepts in ATM, as evidenced by its participation in the SESAR Joint Undertaking (JU) and various FAA
NEXTGEN research activities. As such, Frequentis is the first supplier to have implemented the EUROCAE ED-137 specifications in all of its ATM communications products. These include the
successful VCS 3020X voice switch line, the VCX network node, the iSecCOM Red/Black communication system, and the Frequentis DIVOS 3log recording suite.
