    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Gives general and specific design guidance for the development and installation of the protocols needed to exchange bit-oriented data across an air-ground VHF Digital Link (VDL) in an Open System Interconnection (OSI) environment. Details of the VDL protocols defined herein are specified in the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) VDL Mode 2 (VDLM2) Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs) and in the ICAO Doc 9776 Manual on VHF Digital Link (VDL) Mode 2 Part II. VDLM2 is consistent with the concepts of the ICAO Aeronautical Telecommunication Network (ATN).
