RTCA Government/Industry Air Traffic Management Advisory Committee
Document Number: E9-8994
Type: Notice
Date: 2009-04-20
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is issuing this notice to advise the public of the renewal of the RTCA Charter (FAA Order 1110.77S) for two years, effective April 2, 2011. The administrator is the sponsor of the committee. The objective of the advisory committee is to seek solutions to problems involving applied technology (for example, electronics, computers, and telecommunications) to aeronautical operations that impact the future air traffic management system. The solutions are often about recommended minimum operational performance standards and technical guidance documents that are acceptable to Government, industry, and users. Standards ensure equivalent performance of the same generic equipment built by different manufacturers. Government regulatory and procurement practices reference or use RTCA standards (with or without change). The Secretary of Transportation has determined that that information and use of committee are necessary in the public interest in connection with the performance of duties imposed on the FAA by law.
