SC-206, Aeronautical Information and Meteorological Data Link Services

SC-206, Aeronautical Information and Meteorological Data Link Services, established February 11, 2005, is identifying the AIS (Aeronautical Information Services) and MET (Meteorological) data link services that are envisaged to be implemented within the next decade. In 2014, they published DO-252A, Minimum Interoperability Standards (MIS) for Automated Meteorological Transmission (AUTOMET), and DO-349, Architecture Recommendations for Aeronautical Information (AI) and Meteorological (MET) Data Link Services. The Minimum Operational Performance Standard (MOPS) for Flight Information Services - Broadcast (FIS-B) with Universal Access Transceiver (UAT) was published in March 2015 as DO-358. In December 2014, SC-206 was tasked to work on two new documents - MOPS for the Eddy Dissipation Rate and a "Guidance for Data Linking Forecast and Real-Time Wind Information to Aircraft". In December 2015, SC-206 was also tasked to modify DO-358 to include new weather products. The Minimum Aviation System Performance Standards (MASPS) for AIS and MET Services was published in December 2016 as DO-364.
