Abstract

FAA Telecommunications Infrastructure-2 (FTI-2) Architecture
Developed by the N&T COI FTI-2 Working Group,  Networks and Telecommunications (N&T) Community of Interest
Date Released: June 22, 2017

This White Paper is a collection of topics and white papers that address strategic technical issues for FTI-2. The Paper examines communications architecture influences – decommissioning of obsolete technology and increased use of more advanced approaches as FTI-2 is executed between 2020 and 2035. The analysis and projections provided here are based on the Technology Adoption Curve Model, the “S” curve, as well as tracking three fundamental and underlying technologies integrated circuits, antennas and fiber optic technology. Software development will not be discussed specifically in this paper. Several methods are proposed to evolve FTI-2 support over the life of the contract. Also included are several stand-alone white papers created specifically for this effort.
