The prime challenge is to give all participating units full information to meet the tactical situation and the requirements in near real-time for a common operational picture that can then be exploited to attain the highest possible level of strategic, operational and tactical objectives. In terms of battlespace advantages, the linking of people, platforms, sensors and weapons generates an increased speed of commands, a higher degree of self-synchronisation, and a high tempo of operations. In sum: enhanced combat power.
The unique characteristics and capabilities of the ATLAS Data Link System ADLiS in the automated transfer of data between highly mobile and stationary units makes it an indispensable building block for attaining information superiority and mission effectiveness with network centric operations.
The innovative ATLAS Data Link System ADLiS offers a degree of interoperability that is unprecedented in the market: coverage of all NATO Link channels (11, 16 and 22), provision of the new Link A for non-NATO units as well as the unique ability to allow data exchange between all channels.
Thus ADLiS enables task forces to share one common operational picture – all information at the same moment for everyone in near real-time. The task forces get proven joint tactical data link capabilities comprising multiple data links, including Link 11, Link 16, Link 22, JREAP and SIMPLE. These include combat-proven command and control modules deployable on ships, submarines, land units and ground stations. ADLiS enables forces to exploit tactical data and other information to develop a new kind of intelligence. Absolutely reliable and secure. The system offers the opportunity of being a subsystem of the existing combat management system or a stand-alone link application. Or task forces can keep their existing link solution and expand it by ADLiS to interact with other link solutions.
ADLiS Link A is a system developed for military applications beyond the NATO missions. Link A by ATLAS ELEKTRONIK is based on a modern cipher and modem technology, for reliable and secure data exchange.
