Abstract

   The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) is investigating
   mobile routing solutions for a worldwide Aeronautical
   Telecommunications Network with Internet Protocol Services (ATN/IPS).
   The ATN/IPS will eventually replace existing communication services
   with an IPv6-based service supporting pervasive Air Traffic
   Management (ATM) for Air Traffic Controllers (ATC), Airline
   Operations Controllers (AOC), and all commercial aircraft worldwide.
   This informational document describes a simple mobile routing service
   based on mature industry standards to address the ATN/IPS
   requirements.

1.  Introduction

   The International Civil Aviation Organization [ICAO] is investigating
   mobile routing solutions for a worldwide Aeronautical
   Telecommunications Network with Internet Protocol Services (ATN/IPS).
   The ATN/IPS will eventually replace existing communication services
   with an IPv6-based service supporting pervasive Air Traffic
   Management (ATM) for Air Traffic Controllers (ATC), Airline
   Operations Controllers (AOC), and all commercial aircraft worldwide.
   This informational document describes a simple mobile routing service
   based on mature industry standards to address the ATN/IPS
   requirements.

   Aircraft communicate via wireless aviation data links that typically
   support much lower data rates than terrestrial wireless and wired-
   line communications.  For example, VHF-based data links only support
   data rates on the order of 32Kbps and an emerging L-Band data link
   that is expected to play a key role in future aeronautical
   communications only supports rates on the order of 1Mbps.  Although
   satellite data links can provide much higher data rates during
   optimal conditions, they (like all other aviation data links) are
   subject to errors, delay, disruption, signal intermittence,
