EES serves as an active partner to Harris on FAA’s Data Communications Integrated Services (DCIS) Program. EES provides integration and engineering services for the end-to-end DataComm system, including management and delivery of data communications services leveraging commercial air-to-ground digital data link networks to connect FAA Air Traffic Control (ATC) sites and data communications-equipped aircraft. DCIS will also establish an outreach initiative to encourage and incentivize aircraft operators to equip their aircraft with DataComm-compatible avionics. DCIS is a key component of the FAA’s DataComm Program, which ultimately will automate many of today’s routine ATC and EnRoute voice communications with specialized data messaging equivalents. The goal of DataComm is to ensure more reliable ATC communications; enable trajectory-based routing; improve arrival and departure routes; and reduce pre-departure clearance time enabling fuel savings and reduction in emissions. DataComm is an essential element of the FAA’s Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) initiative to transform the U.S. air traffic control system to meet future requirements.
