The Broadband Aeronautical Multi-carrier Communications (B-AMC) system is a candidate for a future aeronautical communications system to be operated in the L-Band (960-1164 MHz). It is based on the Broadband-VHF (B-VHF) system recently developed for aeronautical communications in the VHF band. As conditions in the L-Band significantly differ from those in the VHF band, basic physical layer parameters had to be adapted, which in turn required a re-design of the higher layers as well. B-AMC offers air/ground (A/G) as well as direct air/air (A/A) communication capabilities without ground relay. The physical layer has been designed to coexist with other systems located in the aeronautical L-Band. The B-AMC data link layer is optimized for low latency and low duty cycle data communication. The B-AMC study is funded by EUROCONTROL.
