Description / Abstract:

The intent of this document is to provide design guidance to developers to ensure interoperability between the implementation of ATS applications.


As ACARS was only designed to provide a link between a user’s ground based-system and the user’s aircraft, message contents for most AOC applications were not standardized. ATS applications involve multiple ground agencies (i.e., CAAs) communicating with aircraft belonging to multiple users; therefore, uniform worldwide message formats and procedures are essential.
