Aeronautical telecommunications are a core enabler for Air Traffic Management.

Today, traditional voice communications are no longer sufficient to support modern operations. The introduction – in addition to voice – of a variety of data transfer systems for new and existing mobile and fixed communications systems, makes this a rapidly developing sector of the industry.

The courses offered provide a detailed understanding of current, short-term and future communications networks and applications, and also cover the planned migration steps as part of the ICAO strategies.

GAELICAM has developed the following communications courses:

C-VOICE: ATS Voice over IP.

This course provides a detailed view of aeronautical voice telephony and radio networks, largely focusing on the transition of current systems to the Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) based on EUROCAE WG67 standards.

It looks in detail at VoIP principles and its future use in aeronautical communications, including crucial migration issues for integrating VoIP into the ATM network architecture.

C-DATALINK: ATC and AOC Datalink services.

This course gives an overview on DATALINK understanding which are the main components of a Datalink system, which technologies support Datalink and what Datalink services are currently available and how they work.

The course explains the different technologies used to provide Datalink (FANS and ATN), addressing the differences between both technologies.

C-AMHS: ATS Message handling System.

This course covers AMHS messaging techniques and their applications in ATM. It provides a detailed explanation of how to migrate from the current AFTN/CIDIN to the new AMHS systems, and the latters’ new capabilities from both technical and operational perspectives.

It also addresses related strategic developments in different ICAO Regions.

C-DATA: Air Navigation Data Communications.

This course provides a comprehensive overview of the data communication applications, technology and infrastructure used in ATM. The ATC IP Network Services are covered in detail, including Surveillance, OLDI/FMTP, Messaging, and others.

Related ICAO Global Air Navigation Plan issues are analysed, together with strategic developments.

C-AFTN: the AFTN network.

This course covers AFTN messaging techniques and their applications in ATM. It provides a detailed explanation of how to implement AFTN-based services from both technical and operational perspectives.

It also addresses related strategic developments in different ICAO Regions.

C-TRANSMISSION: Transmission Means (Microwaves, Optical Fiber rings).

This course provides a comprehensive overview of the transmission means that support communications relating to safety as the Aeronautical Fixed Services (AFS) and Aeronautical Mobile Services (AMS) defined by ICAO.

Regarding ISO model, these systems provides the physical layer for all Air Navigation communications covering such things as pulse amplitudes, line coding, transmission rates, modulation, electromagnetic spectrum, frequency bands, connectors, and anything else needed to transfer digits satisfactorily.

C-RECORDER.

This course covers different techniques to perform the ICAO Legal Recording in telephony and radio services for both legacy analogue voice and digital VoIP.
