Link 16 Products

Packing proven Link 16 capabilities into a small, lightweight, low cost standalone Link 16 terminal.

TacNet™ Tactical Radio (TTR)

The TacNet™ Tactical Radio (TTR) is the smallest, most affordable, and greatest-range-for-its-size Link 16 terminal available, connecting critical networks to previously unserved military platforms.
At one-fourth the size and weight of current Link 16 terminals, our TacNet™ Tactical Radio (TTR) offers U.S. and NATO forces the smallest, most affordable, and greatest range for its size Link 16 terminal available today.

The TacNet™ Tactical Radio (TTR) by Data Link Solutions (DLS) – a joint venture of BAE Systems and Collins Aerospace (formerly Rockwell Collins) – delivers proven Link 16 capability to meet both U.S. armed forces and coalition warfighter requirements in a small, lightweight, low-cost Link 16 situational awareness radio. The DLS TTR is the smallest size, standalone Link 16 terminal available, giving you the edge you need to combat current threats.

Built on a solid foundation of combat-proven tactical data links technology from the world's leading Link 16 manufacturer, our TTR provides critical connectivity for platforms that previously lacked Link 16 access, like Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), Tactical Air Control Party (TACP), mobile and transportable ground stations, rotary wing, small maritime assets, and transport aircraft.

TTR was developed, tested, and qualified to MIL-STD-6016D, STANAG 5516, and DOD 4650.1-R1 requirements, ensuring full interoperability across all platforms now part of the Link 16 network. But TTR also features built-in growth capabilities, including Link 16 crypto modernization, enhanced throughput (ET), concurrent multi-netting, multi-channel capability, and high power capability.

TTR performance characteristics

  • Three selectable transmit power modes: 90W, 50W and 1W
  • Time Slot Duty Factor (TSDF) modes: up to 100%
  • Dual or single antenna TX and RX
  • Jam resistance and crypto secure
  • 127 possible nets
  • Frequency remapping
  • Extended sync endurance
