SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Pursuant to section 10(a)(2) of the Federal Advisory Committee Act (Pub. L. 92-463, 5 U.S.C., Appendix 2), notice is hereby given for a RTCA Special Committee 206: EUROCAE WG 76 Plenary: AIS and MET Data Link Services meeting. The agenda will include:

  • Special Committee (SC) 206, Aeronautical Information and Meteorological Data Link Services, is finishing it's work on the Safety and Performance Requirements for Aeronautical Information Services (AIS) and Meteorological (MET) Data Link Services and a revised Terms of Reference (TOR) for SC-206 has been approved by the RTCA Program Management Committee. A brief description of the document deliverables called out in the revised SC-206 TOR is provided below to inform industry decisions relating to SC-206 participation.
  • These deliverables not only provide data link independent Aeronautical Information Services (AIS) and Meteorological (MET) data link standards and guidelines, but also guidance to RTCA Special Committees that may be developing data link specific standards for AIS and MET data link services. In addition to a Minimum Aviation System Performance Standards (MASPS) for Flight Information Services-Broadcast (FIS-B) Data Link, RTCA DO-267A, revision and an AIS and MET Data Link MASPS, that defines the system-level requirements to provide for data driven intended functional use of AIS/MET data link information as the normal (or primary) means for cockpit receipt, a Concept of Use for AIS and MET Data Link Services and an AIS and MET Services Delivery Architecture Recommendations are included in the TOR deliverables.
  • The Concept of Use for AIS and MET Data Link Services document includes, in a data-link independent manner, AIS and MET services to the aircraft and MET data link services from the aircraft to ground, to provide a common operating picture for evolving global ATM concepts. The AIS and MET Services Delivery Architecture Recommendations deliverable is a holistic, data-link-agnostic technical analysis of delivery methods to and from the aircraft with respect to the operational and safety requirements for AIS and MET services and provides recommended alternatives for AIS and MET data delivery architectures. The Concept of Use and Delivery Architectures document will inform the AIS and MET Data Link MASPS on its scope and content and help determine whether a revision to the Minimum Interoperability Standards (MIS) for Start Printed Page 71184Automated Meteorological Transmission (AUTOMET), RTCA DO-252, may be required.
