ATA Releases New CD-ROM

8th May 2003

The Air Transport Association of America, Inc. (ATA) today announced the release of the 2003 ATA Publications CD-ROM, containing voluntary industry specifications and guidelines.
The newly revised iSPEC2200 (Information Standards for Aviation Maintenance) publication, includes a new section on digital security. In addition, extensive edits to references of names already in the Common Support Data Dictionary (CSDD) terms were made, and new definitions, especially in support of the Document Type Definitions (DTDs), have further enhanced the document. Numerous technical and non-technical editorial clarifications have also been added to facilitate usage. Other highlights include updated and improved DTDs and the ATA Computer Graphic Metafile (CGM) profile.
The SPEC2000 (E-Business Specification for Materiels Management) publication includes clarification of business practices and editorial changes to the existing 14 chapters. For example, Chapter 9 is now entitled `Automated Identification and Data Capture` to better reflect the scope of technologies that are appropriate to track aircraft and engine parts via permanent marking.
The MSG-3 (Operator/Manufacturer Scheduled Maintenance Development) publication includes a rewritten section on the “Fault-Tolerant Systems” procedure, as well as several editorial clarifications and enhancements.
The Air Transport Association of America, Inc. is the trade association for leading U.S. airlines. ATA members transport 95 percent of all passenger and cargo traffic in the United States.
