Aircraft Communications

Aircraft communications is a broad term often immediately associated with an information exchange between an aircraft’s flight deck and ground stations, typically via satellite or radio. In fact, aircraft communications can encompass a much wider spectrum and include digital data link communications shared by airlines, operators, aviation businesses and government departments to enhance aviation security across the globe.

Rockwell Collins’ ARINC ACARS communications Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System, commonly known as ACARS, was developed and introduced by ARINC more than 40 years ago to replace the VHF voice service, which was used for all communications between flight crew and ground personnel prior to the introduction of data link. Primarily designed by ARINC’s engineering department to enhance data integrity, ACARS quickly became the industry standard and is still in use today.

Communicating aviation security data in a seamlessly secure environment is critical to the industry on many levels, from flight operations to passenger data transfer. Rockwell Collins’ ARINC AviNet network provides a robust system architecture that has been relied upon by the industry for over 50 years and handles millions of Type B communications every day for thousands of aviation businesses, airlines and operators worldwide.
