Flight Message Transfer Protocol (FMTP) specification

14 Jun 2007

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.
