AAS 1.19 OPERATIONAL USE OF DOWN-LINK AIRCRAFT PARAMETERS (DAPS)

Many parameters are available from Mode S, ADS-B UAT (Universal Access Transceiver) and ADS-B ES (Extended Squitter) i.e. (Mach number, indicated airspeed, vertical speed, heading etc.) There are no provisions about how or if there a need to check them for validity. Mode C for example is supposed to be checked when the aircraft is identified for the first time but there is nothing in ICAO documents about other data.


IFATCA Policy is:

When using downlinked Altitude (PSA):

  • It shall not be used to provide separation;
  • The display of a PSA should not be used as a substitute for a readback;
  • An alert should be presented to the controller for aircraft with a mismatch between PSA and the Cleared Flight Level (CFL);
  • Nuisance alerts should be kept to a minimum;
  • An alert timeout period should be applied to allow for a new level to be selected in the cockpit.
