Communication and Information

NextGen will transform the way aircraft communicate with each other and with air traffic controllers. Currently, most flight information is delivered between aircraft and air traffic controllers via voice communications. With NextGen, much of this information will be transmitted digitally to increase efficiency and decrease the opportunities for error. This will involve upgrading the air traffic control telecommunication systems, laying more fiber and provisioning more satellite bandwidth.
To further facilitate communication of information, SWIM (System Wide Information Management) would create common standards for sharing information to streamline flight planning and air traffic management. To create these standards, the industry and government will need to collaborate to create common databases and shared services.
