Fright SANDRA trials 24-26th June 2013 in Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany
24-26th June 2013 in Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany - Flight trials have just been completed at the German Aerospace Center to test a new avionic communication system based on IPv6, modular and flexible radio architecture and multiple links.
It has been a “premiere”: for the first time the new datalink named AeroMACS devised by Action Plan 17 in conjunction with two legacy data links Inmarsat BGAN and VDL2, integrated on an IPv6 framework have been tested in real flight environment.
Also seamless transmission of Air Traffic Services data took place on legacy links and on new IP based links by means of Mobile IP/SNDCF, which is an ICAO protocol originally designed for ground-ground networks.
