Presenting LDACS - A general introduction

A webinar series on a new aviation communication system
LDACS event banner

The L-band digital aeronautical communication system (LDACS) is a modern and advanced air/ground secured communication technology that also has Navigation and Surveillance capabilities.

LDACS is now reaching sufficient technical and standardisation maturity and is considered a strong candidate to enhance the current and future mobile data link applications as part of the Future Communications Infrastructure (FCI).

In order to support any potential upcoming decisions on large scale demonstration and deployment, a series of four awareness webinars will be organised by SESAR JU and EUROCONTROL, together with panels of experts from ICAO, IATA, FAA, industry, ANSPs, Airspace Users, as well as Communication Service Providers.

This webinar will kick off a series of four 90-minute webinars. It will provide a general introduction to LDACS including the R&D, high-level capabilities and its place in global and local CNS/ATM strategies.
