Network Tactical Common Data Link

NTCDL improves data exchange between platforms across land, sea, and air to provide warfighters with an integrated tactical network.
NTCDL improves data exchange between platforms across land, sea, and air to provide warfighters with an integrated tactical network.

NTCDL allows for the exchange of mission critical information when it matters most. The system provides U.S. Navy operators with the ability to simultaneously transmit and receive real-time intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) data from multiple sources and exchange command and control information across separate or independent networks.

Our system goes a step further by allowing data sharing, exchange, transfer, or distribution in real-time across military assets such as aircraft, ships, and unmanned vehicles. By bringing together a greater volume of data, our system allows operators to effectively communicate command and control protocols among forces to maintain an advantage.

We created NTCDL to be modular and scalable for ease of use in the future. Our open concept gives operators the space they need to address new waveforms and add link capacity to meet their demands. The design also makes it easier to reprogram the system to adapt to new and emerging missions.

Benefits:

  • Multi-link Common Data Link (CDL) surface terminal meets U.S. Navy’s ever-expanding C4ISR and high tempo operation concepts.
  • Our scalable, modular open system architecture provides fleet-wide deployment across multiple ship classes.
  • Software-defined programmable CDL radios.
  • Commercial, off-the-shelf network switch fabric provides flexible antenna switching for enhanced radio frequency link performance.

Mission critical information is an asset to the warfighter and NTCDL’s data sharing capabilities increase communication accessibility, allowing decision makers to adapt to mission needs. Download our brochure to learn more.
