Flight Message Transfer Protocol (FMTP) specification
This EUROCONTROL specification defines the interoperability and performance requirements for implementations of the Flight Message Transfer Protocol (FMTP).
The FMTP is used, in a peer-to-peer communications context. In particular, for the information exchanges en flight data processing systems for the purpose of notification, co-ordination and transfer of flights between air traffic control units and for the purposes of civil-military co-ordination.
The FMTP is based on industry-standard Transmission Control Protocol / Internet Propotcol (TCP/IP) provisions.
