Arrow Manager Menu




Arrow ACARS Manager

Page 1



If the AUTOMATIC key is selected, the ACARS system tunes to the appropriate frequency.

If the AUTOMATIC key is deselected, a frequency key can be selected to manually tune to the desired frequency.

If the service provider uplinks a request to change frequency, the AUTOTUNE FREQUENCY window displays and ACARS tunes to the requested frequency.

Manager messages related to ACARS are on ACARS page two.


Page 2



ACARS is set to auto mode (all boxes selected) at power-up or during a manual data communication system reset.

Normally, this permits ACARS to automatically use VHF, SATCOM (if VHF is unavailable), or HF (if VHF and SATCOM are unavailable).

If all boxes are deselected, ACARS loses the capability to send downlink messages, but can receive and display uplink messages.


Arrow VHF Manager



The default radio can also be set to the data or voice mode via the Radio Tuning Pane.


Arrow HF Manager



The default radio can also be set to the data or voice mode via the Radio Tuning Pane.


Arrow SATCOM Manager




Arrow Automatic Dependent Surveillance Manager



When ADS is armed, AUTOMATIC position report messages are sent to ATC and COMPANY.

• ADS EMERGENCY – sends an alert to ATC indicating an emergency situation (resets to ADS EMERGENCY OFF at power-up)

• ADS EMERGENCY OFF – cancels emergency indication to ATC

A list of ADS connection status is displayed on the ADS page.


Arrow System Information Manager



These fields are normally supplied by the airplane system.

When not available from the system, box prompts are displayed and a value can be entered.

A manual entry will remain until power to AIMS is interrupted.

Changing the entry after establishing an ATC connection cancels the ATC connection.


Arrow Printer Manager



If the COMPANY MESSAGES FUTURE key is selected, company messages are sent directly to the printer and the •PRINTER EICAS message is displayed.

Future messages are not included in the new messages or review categories.


Arrow Automatic Messages Manager



When the AUTOMATIC MESSAGES OFF key is selected, the CONFIRM OFF key is displayed.

Selecting the CONFIRM OFF key turns off the capability to automatically send flight operations related messages.


Arrow Master Manager



If the DATA LINK SYSTEM RESET key is selected, the CONFIRM RESET key is displayed.

If the CONFIRM RESET key is selected, the following occurs:

• ATC connection is reset to not established on the ground
• Review messages are deleted
• Center VHF radio is selected as the default
• VHF default radio is set to data mode on the ground or voice mode in the air
• Right HF radio is selected as the default and set to voice mode (777-200LR and 777-300ER [AP-BGY-AP-BHW, AP-BID])
• ACARS is set to the auto mode
• Automatic messages are set to ON
• Future company messages to printer feature is deselected
• Downlink message parameters are initialized
• ADS OFF is reset to ADS ARM
• ADS EMERGENCY is reset to ADS EMERGENCY OFF on the ground
• Two seconds after selection, the CONFIRM RESET key is removed from the display and the DATA LINK SYSTEM RESET key is displayed as not selected

This reset does not occur at power–up.

Except for configuration of ACARS data radios, the data communication system is automatically reset after each flight.

Reset occurs approximately 10 minutes after the last engine is shut down, and with any entry door open.

Data link capability for the flight management system, OMS (Onboard Maintenance System), and EICAS related maintenance functions, and cabin functions are not reset with this feature.
