Airborne communication terminal is a key unit in Ad hoc network of aircrafts. This paper mainly focuses on its implementation by embedded system, which is based on Samsung S3C2410 chip. System architecture, Linux tailoring and touch-screen driver design are discussed in detail. Considering the requirements of stability and efficiency of the operating system, dynamic driver-loading method was employed firstly and only the necessary library files were transplanted to assist and test. The drivers finally were directly put into kernel configuration and then an integrated kernel was transplanted. Regarding to the problem of positioning issues on touch-screen, which is implemented in this system, an accurate positioning method is also presented.
