With the adoption of intelligent airplanes, aircraft and engine performance and health monitoring data have grown over time and now represent up to 80% of a new generation aircraft’s ACARS data volume. This significant increase is threatening to overcome the ability of VHF and HF networks to meet capacity requirements. ACARS over IP (AoIP) and broadband connectivity present an opportunity for aircraft and engine data to be moved away from traditional ACARS VHF, HF, and safety SATCOM connectivity. This will help preserve the limited bandwidth of traditional networks so they can continue to provide highly reliable communications services for operational and safety critical airline information. Learn more about how to enable AoIP capabilities in this latest whitepaper from Collins Aerospace.
