VDL Mode 4 Ground Stations
VDL 4000/GSI Advanced
The VDL 4000/GSI Advanced ground station is designed to support a wide range of time- critical CNS/ATM applications including broadcast and point-to-point communication. The ground station is designed for several operational alternatives, e.g. local services, as well as, wide area network solutions for critical data communication where predictability, reliability and redundancy are required.
The ground station provides features to achieve the highest level of A-SMGCS, which is a key airport component. The system supports services such that a complete gate-to-gate operation can be realized. These services include ADS-B, TIS-B, FIS-B, Point-to-Point, and DGNSS augmentation (GNS-B).The ground station operates in accordance with the ICAO standards for the VDL Mode 4 digital radio link. Together with mobile transponders, an integrated system for communication, navigation and surveillance services is created.
The VDL 4000/GSI ground station is tailored for ground handling and coordination of all vehicle activities at the airport. The functionality of the ground station guarantees that each user has access to the latest information in real time, enabling maximum use of Collaborative Decision Making (CDM). The ground station is part of the Airport Organiser, an integrated system for communication, navigation and surveillance services.
The ground station operates in accordance with the ICAO standards for the VDL Mode 4 digital radio link, offering a robust and reliable communication platform for all airport vehicles operating in the maneuvering and apron area. The system has long range at low power and very good transmission characteristics on the ground at airports where the radio environment is a tough challenge.
