What does COMLOSS mean? How does it impact ATM and how it is managed?
Instances of loss of communications between air traffic controllers and pilots, also known as communications loss (COMLOSS) by the military or as prolonged loss of communications (PLOC) in the civil sector, started to be investigated and reported by only a small number of airlines, such as British Airways and KLM, at the end of the 1990s.

In 2002, the UK Safety Regulation Group invited EUROCONTROL to centralise the constantly increasing COMLOSS and broaden their investigations to the European level.
The database of incidents originally used by the UK SRG has been transferred to EUROCONTROL and made available to airlines, ATC services, and the military.
