RTCA SC-214 is jointly established with EUROCAE WG-78 to develop standards to define the safety, performance and interoperability requirements for Air Traffic Services (ATS) supported by data communications. Data Communications in support of the NextGen Air Transportation System and Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR) Initiatives will introduce services that allow evolution from the current workload intensive, voice-based air traffic control concepts, to collaborative, management-by-exception operations. Advanced data links between ground and airborne systems are envisioned to increase sector-based traffic capacity allowing greater user access and more efficient flight routing.
