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.

The series will sequentially cover the following topics:

  1. A general introduction to LDACS
  2. Technical details and capabilities of LDACS for Communications and integrated CNS
  3. Deployment options and transition scenarios
  4. Economic and Business considerations for all stakeholders

We look forward to welcoming you to these webinars.
