High Frequency Data Link use has grown 20% a year for the last 10 years.

CDUThe data link revolution in aviation communications began over 30 years ago when ARINC first introduced the Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System (ACARS®). Today, over 300 airlines and 15,000 aircraft around the world rely on ACARS® and the GLOBALinkSM infrastructure for these critical communications.

ACARS benefits are numerous for customers, ranging from greater reporting accuracy and more efficient flight operations to reduced congestion and faster turnaround times. And ARINC is always expanding our data link capabilities to help airlines continuously strive for optimal performance, safety, and operational integrity.

Aircraft DataAs the largest aeronautical data link provider in the world, GLOBALink delivers unmatched air/ground coverage. VHF data link extends throughout all of North and Central America as well as most of Europe and Asia and is 10 times faster than standard ACARS. Inmarsat satellite service expands VHF capabilities to include real-time reporting of flight and weather information. HF covers remote polar regions while Iridium is used to fill in intermittent oceanic and polar coverage. Updated Jeppesen Charts detailing ARINC VHF and HF coverage are available for pilots to download anytime.

Being the company that started it all and the company that is still the industry leader simply makes ARINC the one to trust for data link communications.
