February 27

  • Greetings & Attendance.
  • Review summary of June and November meetings (13th and 14th Plenaries).
  • Report on the status of the DO-343 MASPS approval process.
  • The primary focus of the meeting will be a final review of the draft material for the DO-262 MOPS for SwiftBroadband, and of the changes to DO-262 Iridium-specific material. Both sets of material will have undergone significant pre-FRAC coordination meetings in the last week of January and early February, so there should not be significant additional changes required before passing into the FRAC process. The outcome of the meeting is approval of the SwiftBroadband and Iridium material for release to the formal RTCA Final Review and Comment (FRAC) process.
  • Other items as appropriate.
  • Schedule for 16th Plenary. The 16th Plenary session will be for the purpose of resolving any comments received during the FRAC process.
