Abstract : This document is intended to provide the operating/maintenance requirements for future National Airspace System communications system designs and developmental efforts, and the vehicle for discussion and coordination with the various policy planning, operating, maintenance, and engineering activities concerned with FAA Communications. Requirements submitted by Air Traffic and Airway Facilities Services have been used and augmented by inputs from SRDS, MITRE and the Computer Sciences Corporation. Communications requirements are established for all national airspace environments. This document provides the basic sets of requirements applicable to each of the environments and their subsets, i.e., voice/data air/ground communications, voice ground/ground communications and data ground/ground communications. These requirements will be utilized to derive the detailed functional and design requisites to be incorporated in all Integrated National Airspace Communication System (INACS) specifications.
