Arrow Aeronautical Telecommunication Network (ATN)

In the early 1980s, the international civil aviation community started to express concern about the limitations of existing facilities and procedures and their inability to cope with increasing air traffic in future years. Consequently, a special committee, called the Special Committee on Future Air Navigation Systems (FANS), was established by the ICAO Council in 1983 to study, identify and assess new concepts and new technology in the field of air navigation, including satellite technology, and to make recommendations thereon for the development of air navigation for international civil aviation over a period of twenty-five years.

A major result of the work of the FANS Committee was the global communications, navigation, and surveillance/air traffic management (CNS/ATM) systems concept which identified the use of data communications and of satellite-based systems as being the two major areas of improvement to the then existing systems. The systems concept was further developed and refined by the Phase II of the FANS Committee which concluded its work in 1993. The aeronautical telecommunication network (ATN) is an integral part of the CNS/ATM systems.

In February 1993, the Air Navigation Commission (ANC) established the Aeronautical Telecommunication Network Panel (ATNP) to develop Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs), (commonly called the CNS/ATM-1 Package) guidance material and other relevant documents for the ATN. In 1997 the ANC requested the ATN Panel to consolidate all ATN guidance material into a single comprehensive document. This document is the result of that consolidation and is known as the Comprehensive ATN Manual.
