The future airport surface communication system, called AeroMACS, shall be based on the IEEE 802.16 standard, in particular on the "WiMAX Mobile System Profile Specification". In the course of the SANDRA project the IEEE standard and the WIMAX mobile profile have been investigated and different configuration options have been evaluated. This paper presents an overview of options related to data exchange and possibilities how to integrate an AeroMACS system into an IPS based communication network. Furthermore, selected results from a performance evaluation study are shown.
