In this activity, you will analyze and study the subject presented and compose an outline of a response addressing the questions posed. Your writing should concentrate on the development of specific events, issues, or conditions of the subject and their relationships. The outline response should involve research and documented evidence of your subject and be of sufficient content to write a 1.5 page report in Week 5.
Both the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Eurocontrol (Europe’s FAA) actively research, experiment with, and deploy technologies in order to create a safer and more efficient airspace system.
An example is Controller-Pilot Data Link Communications (CPDLC), which in addition to the existing radio, creates a second channel for communication between pilots and air traffic controllers (ATC). Instead of keying the radio, ATC and pilots type instructions and requests and send via text messaging. This reduces ATC workload and frees up the radio channels for important communications.

Case Study Supplemental Resources
Case Study Questions:
What computer technologies do you recognize being used in the videos? What benefits are derived from the application of computer technology to controller – pilot communications? What are the challenges or risks of using CPDLC?
Your case study outline draft is due before the end of this module. Your instructor will review your work and provide feedback.
