ACARS: Timeless tech for connected aircraft age
The ACARS landscape is being shaped for the future by SITAONAIR. Download our white paper, ACARS: Timeless tech for the connected aircraft age, to find out more.
In this new paper, we explore how ACARS is evolving in the connected aircraft age – and why it will remain the aviation industry’s trusted and reliable network in the years to come.
When ACARS technology first came into use in 1978, it relied exclusively on Very High Frequency (VHF) radio channels. As the demand for air travel continues to rise, so has the need for, and steady addition of, alternative means of transmitting aircraft data. This is exactly why today’s expert SITAONAIR engineers continue to integrate diverse technologies within the central ACARS system, as well as advancing its VHF/VDL roots, reinforcing ACARS’ core value for connected airlines.
