ATIMS DESCRIPTION/OPERATION
ATSU
The ATSU has been designed to take provision of all
foreseen evolutions. The modularity concept for
software permits to ease data link capability during
all Communication Navigation Surveillance/Air Traffic
Management (CNS/ATM) transitions.

TMUATDO01-T02 LEVEL 3

UFD4200

The ATSU software is partitioned into two main parts:


- Aircraft interface / host platform and
- Data link applications.

AIRCRAFT INTERFACE/HOST PLATFORM SOFTWARE

TMUATDO01-T03 LEVEL 3

UFD4200

The aircraft interface/host platform is composed of


four services :
- Air/ground communication, used for the
management of the air/ground communication
media,
- Human machine interface, used for the
management of the CNS/ATM cockpit interfaces
(MCDU, printer and alert function),
- On-board peripherals, used for the management
of the communication with the on-board
peripheral units (Data Management Unit (DMU),
CFDIU, FMS and Cabin Terminal (CT)),
- System management, used for the acquisition of
the aircraft parameters for application
software use and monitoring of the system
(power supply and BITE functions).

ATIMS DESCRIPTION/OPERATION
DATALINK APPLICATIONS
The data link applications include only Airline
Operation Control (AOC) for the pre FANS configuration.
The AOC applications are dedicated to data
communication services between the aircraft and the
airline facility.
The AOC is composed of :
- Remote AOC applications and
- Hosted AOC applications.

TMUATDO01-T04 LEVEL 3

UFD4200

For the remote AOC applications the ATSU only routes


data to and from AOC peripherals. This routing is in
charge of receiving ground messages and routing them
to the right AOC peripheral and acquiring messages or
reports from these peripherals and sending them to the
ground.

COMM MENU
The Air-Ground communications functions and services
are active as soon as their initialization is complete.
COMM INIT
The initialization (through COMM INIT menu) is
considered as completed when the ATSU has received a
valid Aircraft Registration Number (ARN), Airline
Ident and scan mask.
The ARN and Airline Ident are used in the air/ground
communication as aircraft addressing means.
The VHF3 SCAN MASK gives an ordered list of authorized
service providers usable for data communications.

TMUATMM01-T02 LEVEL 3

UFD4200

VHF3 DATA MODE


The VHF3 DATA MODE menu displays the various regions
which can be selected. Each region is associated with
a datalink service provider and a frequency.
VHF3 VOICE DIRECTORY
The VHF3 VOICE DIRECTORY allows the following
functions:
- to display a voice frequency directory,
- to activate one of these frequencies,
- to select the data mode,
- to activate the voice frequency contained in
the last received company call,
- to manually enter a frequency.

functions and services of the ATSU to be activated.
Three essential parameters are required :
- a valid flight ident,
- an A/C Registration Number (ARN) and
- a valid scan mask.
Otherwise, the ACARS STBY green memo is displayed on
the ECAM .

VHF3 LINK TEST

TMUATMU01-T10 LEVEL 3

UFD4200

This procedure, called VHF3 Link Test of the ATSU,


checks the VHF3 link between the A/C and the ground.
A check of the ATSU initialization is done through the
VHF3 DATA MODE menu, the VHF3 VOICE DIRECTORY menu and
the COMM STATUS menu.
VHF3 must be operational, the VHF3 link available and
in DATA mode.

flight number, fuel on board, ),
- for air-ground communication functions (flight
number, FMS master/slave, ).

selection, parameter entry (captain name, fuel
units, ), display of AOC specific information
(AOC received messages, scratchpad messages,
), and print command,
- for air-ground communication functions to allow

ATIMS COMPONENT
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
The avionics computers are Electrostatic Sensitive
Devices (ESDs). These components are susceptible to
damage by electrical sources that would not damage
conventional components.
The low energy source, that most commonly destroys
ESDs, is the human body which generates static
electricity in conjunction with the ground.

TMUATCO01-T01 LEVEL 3

UFD4200

The precautions to follow are to :


- de-energize all power and signal sources,
- place the unit on a grounded conductive work
surface,
- ground any tools that will contact the unit...
When it is specified on the maintenance manual.

COMPONENT DESCRIPTION
The ATSU is a unit which integrates all services
dedicated to data communications between the aircraft
and the ground.
After an ATSU removal/installation some tasks have to
be performed:
- 1. The A/C Interface software (FIN:20TX) must
be loaded into the ATSU,
- 2. an ATSU router initialization must be
carried out,
- 3. the AOC software and database (FIN:22TX and
24TX) must be loaded into the ATSU and,
- 4. BITE test of the ATIMS must be carried out.
