This webinar is the third in a series, organised by the SESAR JU and EUROCONTROL, presenting LDACS, a new aviation communication system. It follows on from “A general introduction to LDACS” and “Technical details and capabilities of LDACS” by focussing on deployment and transition scenarios of LDACS on board of aircraft and the complementary ground infrastructure.

The webinar will set off with the SESAR Deployment Manager (SDM) perspective on the decisions needed and the mechanisms established to facilitate LDACS deployment. It will then provide an inside view on the requirements and planning of aircraft operators and avionics manufacturers. From there an overview on Communication Service Providers and Air Navigation Service Providers perspective deploying and operating LDACS ground infrastructure and services will be presented. The remaining time will be dedicated to discussing questions from the audience.
