Abstract/Summary

The Philippines transition from Aeronautical Fixed Telecommunications Network (AFTN) to Aeronautical Message Handling System (AMHS) was studied and conceptualized to be able to be used as guidance for the future system to be implemented in the country. International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Standard and Recommended Practices (SARPs) was used as a reference for this study. The study focused on the hardware depiction of the system. The present ground communications system, the AFTN system is limited in throughput, data integrity, and the ability to handle bit oriented message exchanges. The evolution of the communications path to AMHS capability is seen as positive outlook for the country's aviation industry. The country's existing ground-ground communications system was discussed in this paper as well as its future implementation and theoretical considerations.
