The ULS is a versatile, modular, scalable, Data Link Processor(DLP) that can be configured to include all NATO, U.S. Standard Data Links as well as customer-defined Links in any combination required by the end-user. Constitutes a force multiplier offering an increase in the Situational Awareness by delivering the Common Tactical Picture and improving control of all linked Tactical assets.
The Universal Link System (ULS) is a network-centric software solution that enables a seamless, configurable, expandable integration of Data Links on Land, Sea and Air platforms and assets, providing them with participation and forwarding amongst Link 16, Link 11A, Link 11B, Link1, ATDL-1, IJMS, JREAP and Link 22 in the near future. It can be configured as a single Data Link solution for any C2 or non-C2 asset and expand easily for multiple Data Links connectivity and forwarding, by simply adding the appropriate s/w and h/w components.
The ULS is easily integrated into any existing C2 system by expanding its capabilities in delivering the Common Tactical Picture (CTP). This is achieved by its open architecture and information exchange interfacing protocols. In a stand-alone configuration the ULS provides C2 operational capabilities, such as Data Fusion, Track Management, Correlation/De-correlation, ID/IFF Conflict, Pairing, Filtering, Threat evaluation and more. The ULS is an essential step in achieving Inter-Service interoperability and provides the basis of a truly integrated tactical environment.
Installations of the ULS exist today in various configurations in Land, Sea and Air assets in a number of countries around the world, providing them with effective Data Link capabilities to share tactical information and improve their Situational Awareness
The ULS is customizable to include and integrate with National and non-standard Data Links, apart from the range of NATO and U.S. standard links
Cost-effective solution allowing for gradual expansion of capabilities as the operational needs increase
