FAA: Data Comm Service Now Implemented at Miami Int’l Airport

The Federal Aviation Administration has said Miami International Airport has experienced a reduction in departure delays following the implementation of the Data Comm service.

FAA said Monday Data Comm is a NextGen technology platform that works to help pilots and air traffic controllers send and receive revised flight plans, clearances and advisories through digital messages.

Miami International Airport ranks 12th in North America’s list of busiest airports and is considered the largest entryway to Latin America.

The agency has implemented the Data Comm service at control towers of 55 U.S. airports such as Atlanta, Boston and Denver.

FAA selected an industry team led by Harris Corp. in September 2012 to provide Data Comm engineering and integration services under a potential $331 million contract.

The Data Communications Integrated Services contract has a base period of seven years and 10 option years that could run through 2029.
