Integration of the fighter data link terminal into the F-15 gives pilots enhanced tactical capabilities, including improved situational awareness. The fighter data link provides the aircrew with immediate access to unprecedented amounts of critical information, such as friendly, unknown, and enemy flight data, and key data elements, such as location, direction of flight, altitude, and type of aircraft. This data allows members of a flight to keep track of each other's position and status without transmitting a single voice message.
The MIDS Fighter Data Link Terminal is produced by Data Link Solutions, a joint venture of BAE Systems and Collins Aerospace.
