APA is a protocol decoder that is used to analyze digital communications traffic. It displays all VHF-based data communications exchanged between ground stations and aircraft, and allows users to visualize all layers of each protocol data unit (PDU).
APA is commonly used in conjunction with ALTYS’s test products in support to troubleshooting and performance assessment. APA also is an essential part of the COSMOS platform, enabling both real-time monitoring and post-capture log analysis.
