Spectral Link 16 Tactical Data Link (TDL) By Meta Mission Data (MMD)

Link 16 is an essential enabler for shared situational awareness and a key enabler for multi-domain integration. Capable of supporting a wide and increasing variety of missions spanning contested to benign operating environments to humanitarian and disaster relief, the MMD Spectral interface into AIMS-ISR delivers near real-time, accurate, exploitable information for decision-makers.

Accelerated Tactical Decision-Making when Every Second Counts

With industry ISR platforms increasingly supporting military and government operations across the globe, an integrated Link 16 capability is rapidly becoming an essential requirement. Through the MMD Spectral plug-in for AIMS-ISR, Link 16 is fully integrated to provide operators with Link 16 units and tracks that are georeferenced on augmented reality moving maps alongside other sensor data (e.g. EO/IR cameras). The more participants in the network, the greater the “network effect.” This maximizes information advantage for the operator and decision-maker.

Link 16 Situational Awareness for Today's ISR Platforms

ISR platforms provide the information that drives the pace of decision-making. Wherever an ISR platform is required to operate alongside Link 16 equipped entities, their ability to interact with the network is essential.

Enhanced Situational Awareness

ISR operators work in high-pressure, fast-paced, dynamic environments. With Link 16 situational awareness, sensor and mission system operators are ahead of the curve. Link 16 within the COP significantly reduces the risk of operator overload and tactical confusion caused by late and inaccurate information exchange.

Resilient Communications

The MMD Spectral interface enables increased situational awareness through transmission of own unit PPLI into the network. In addition, enabling secure Link 16 Voice and text messaging. Beyond Line of Sight (BLOS) comms can be achieved via Link 16 relay or satellite connectivity further extending the network.

Reduced Operator Workload

Reduce workload with automated sensor slewing to Link 16 tracks, configurable warnings and alerts and optimized operator ergonomics. The MMD Spectral interface leverages the powerful augmented reality mapping that AIMS-ISR is renowned for, exploiting its full capabilities for accurate positioning of Link 16 track data.
