The NATO Link 11B 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 Link 1 interfaces simultaneously. The DLP can support additional serial data links (Link 1 or ATDL-1), in which case the number of interfaces for each link is reduced.
The NATO Link11 Application runs on a Data Link Processor with either a ATDS or NTDS interface to facilitate the interface requirements to the Link11 Data Terminal Set (DTS).
The single application configuration provides a complete Link 11 solution with a robust and proven implementation of the Link 11 messages. Link 11 messages are implemented in accordance with STANAG 5511, with the full range of messages required for the conduct of air, surface, sub-surface, and electronic warfare including commands, weapons status, pointers, etc.
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.
