International Codes and Route Designators (ICARD)

ICARD (International Codes and Route Designators) is a database of 280,000 five-letter name-codes (5LNCs) and 16,000 route designators (RDs) used for global air navigation. It allows Member States and Regional Managers the reservation and allocation of 5LNCs used for the identification of significant points not marked by the site of a radio navigation aid and designators for ATS routes, while ensuring uniqueness in compliance with ICAO Annex 11, Annex 15, and PANS-OPS. These 5LNCs end up on aircraft flight decks (FMS).
