In 7 FAA Programs Seeing Growth in DME Funding: Part 1 I gave a quick rundown on which Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) programs had requested larger amounts of development, modernization, and enhancement (DME) funding for their FY16 IT budget. Today I’ll touch on the largest technology priorities within the FAA and their related programs.
FAA’s program with the largest DME increase, DataComm – the organization’s attempt to automate enhancements for air control communication and data linkage between aircraft and ground users – has modeling & simulation requirements that’ll need to be met before its implementation in FY16-17. You’ll want to show how your product can aid in their testing efforts and efficiently meet their rollout deadline. If your company has collaboration solutions, you’ll also want to reach out to DataComm decision makers to indicate how your product can help automate data transfer from aircraft to ground users.
