Aeronautical Telecommunications Volume I Radio Navigation Aids
|Publication Date:||1 July 2006|
Standards and Recommended Practices for Aeronautical Telecommunications were first adopted by the Council on 30 May 1949 pursuant to the provisions of Article 37 of the Convention on International Civil Aviation (Chicago 1944) and designated as Annex 10 to the Convention. They became effective on 1 March 1950. The Standards and Recommended Practices were based on recommendations of the Communications Division at its Third Session in January 1949.
Up to and including the Seventh Edition, Annex 10 was published in one volume containing four parts together with associated attachments: Part I - Equipment and Systems, Part II - Radio Frequencies, Part III - Procedures, and Part IV - Codes and Abbreviations.
By Amendment 42, Part IV was deleted from the Annex; the codes and abbreviations contained in that part were transferred to a new document, Doc 8400.
As a result of the adoption of Amendment 44 on 31 May 1965, the Seventh Edition of Annex 10 was replaced by two volumes: Volume I (First Edition) containing Part I - Equipment and Systems, and Part II - Radio Frequencies, and Volume II (First Edition) containing Communication Procedures. As a result of the adoption of Amendment 70 on 20 March 1995, Annex 10 was restructured to include five volumes: Volume I - Radio Navigation Aids; Volume II - Communication Procedures; Volume III - Communication Systems; Volume IV - Surveillance Radar and Collision Avoidance Systems; and Volume V - Aeronautical Radio Frequency Spectrum Utilization. By Amendment 70, Volumes III and IV were published in 1995 and Volume V was published in 1996 with Amendment 71.
Table A shows the origin of Annex 10, and the origin of subsequent amendments, together with a summary of the principal subjects involved and the dates on which the Annex and the amendments were adopted by Council, when they became effective and when they became applicable.
