The ATDL-1 Application runs on a Data Link Processor (DLP) with eight serial ports to facilitate the specific interface requirements to the data modems (if needed) and can drive up to eight ATDL-1 interfaces simultaneously.
The DLP can support additional serial data links (Link 11B or Link 1), in which case the number of interfaces for each link is reduced. The single VME slot configuration provides a complete ATDL-1 solution with a robust and proven implementation of the ATDL-1 messages.
ATDL-1 messages are implemented in accordance with MIL-STD-6013 Army Tactical Data Link-1 (ATDL-1) Message Standard, with the full range of B series messages required for the exchange of air surveillance information, commands and weapon status. The data interface used within the Data Link Processor (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.
