Link 16

The NATO Link 16 Application runs on a Data Link Processor (DLP) that provides interface to a MIDS-LVT terminal.

The single application configuration provides a complete Link 16 solution with a robust and proven implementation of the Link 16 messages. Link 16 messages are implemented in accordance with STANAG 5516, Link 16 Interface Specification, with the full range of messages required for the exchange of space, air, surface, subsurface and ground surveillance information.

The data interface used within the DLP is provided via ISIH's proprietary Tactical Information Exchange (TIE) protocol. The TIE interface can be customized to the individual customer's requirement or an Application Program Interface (API) can be provided to interface directly within the customer's tactical software suite.
