Tactical Data Links and Data Link Processors (DLP) form the backbone of effective situational awareness communications.
Tactical Data Links are secure military communication standards that exchange tactical data between platforms and commands.
Knowing exactly what’s happening during an operation is crucial for any soldier — it means they are able to make timely and accurate decisions. Decisions that can make the difference between life and death.
So the ability to share information securely is critical. TDL and DLP capabilities help make this possible. Accurate and assured, situational awareness information is passed during ongoing operations, using our leading edge, flexible, and secure data system.
Additionally, issuing commands electronically to the front-line, reduces the workload of pilots and troops and ensures the accuracy of the details. By integrating operationally proven, robust products into customized Tactical Communications capabilities, the DoD is provided with cost effective, flexible solutions, which meet their individual requirements and deliver real value.
Cohesive Tactical Data Links and Data Link Processors eliminate concerns about compatibility issues when these systems have the capacity to support a vast range of link types, including AFAPD, Link 16, IDM, Link 22, JREAP, SADL, Link 11 and VMF.
Tactical Data Link (TDL) networks are the fundamental component of military platforms. TDL performs real-time information flow between all participants. DLP Link Processer connects all the participants each other and provides clear tactical picture to the command centers and all participants.
A data link is a method for connecting one location to another in telecommunications, in order to transmit and receive digital information. Data transfer happens over a certain link protocol that allows data to be transferred from the source to the destination.
A tactical data link (TDL) uses a data link standard in order to provide communication via radio waves or cable used by NATO nations. All military C3 systems use standardized TDL to transmit, relay and receive tactical data.
DLP is one of the most advanced and rare processor in its field around the World. DLP is capable of install, manage and connect multiple Link types to multiple networks. Since 2018 ADVENT DLP is successfully testing in annual NATO CWIX (Coalition Warrior Interoperability Exercise).
