CPDLC Solution

Controller-Pilot Data-Link Communications

Meet the increasing demands
on ATCO-Pilot communication

Enhanced flight safety, efficiency and airspace capacity by reducing controller workload and minimising congestion on voice communication channels.

Controller-Pilot Data-Link Communications (CPDLC) is a solution to increase capacity and the level of safety and efficiency at the same time. As CPDLC is mandated by the European Commission to be introduced by 2018, all European ANSPs need to be well prepared.

CPDLC provides an additional communication channel beside the regular VHF channels. It helps to reduce the workload of controllers thus increases capacity and the level of safety taking advantage of the clarity of text messages. Last but not least, increased capacity means increased efficiency as well.
