SC-236, Standards for Wireless Avionics Intra-Communication System (WAIC) within 4200-4400 MHz

SC-236, Standards for Wireless Avionics Intra-Communication System (WAIC) within 4200-4400 MHz, established June 21, 2016, is working to develop the Minimum Operational Performance Standards (MOPS) for Wireless Equipment to allow a WAIC system to share the band with Radio Altimeters and other WAIC systems. This Committee will operate in coordination with EUROCAE WG-96, "Wireless On Board Avionics Network," and the new standard will be issued as a joint document. The goal is for the new MOPS to be incorporated into a Technical Standard Order providing the basis for the FAA and user community to accomplish procedural planning, investment analysis and architectural decision making.
