September 13, 2019 (San Diego, CA) – Combat Proven Technologies (CP Tech) has launched a line of advanced Datalink systems. Using open architecture and in-house development, CP Tech enables full duplex wideband, digital link, error correction and high-rate communication for uplink and downlink channels. It combines proven technologies and standards with advanced algorithms to provide reliability and high performance for the harshest conditions. The five products in the Datalinks collection are:
The Integrated Data Link System (IDLS MK-II) is an advanced single unit digital data link system specifically designed for long range operations for medium to large size platforms which are sensitive to Size, Weight and Power (SWaP). This advanced system uses open architecture and enables full duplex wideband, digital link, error correction techniques and high-rate communication in the Uplink (UPL) and Downlink (DNL) channels. The IDLS MK-II can downlink real-time video images, LAN, serial data and information from most available sensors. It combines proven technologies and standards with advanced algorithms to provide reliability and high performance, for the harshest conditions.
The Advanced Mini Link System (AMLS) is an advanced single unit digital data link system specifically designed for operations of up to 150 Km for medium to large size platforms which are sensitive to Size, Weight and Power (SWaP). The AMLS enables digital communication between equipment mounted on a remote platform (UAV/Helicopter/Maritime vessel etc.) and a ground station (GCS). The AMLS supports high bandwidth downlink from the remote platform to the GCS and narrow band uplink to the remote platform. The system maintains the link during all parts of the mission as long as Line Of Sight (LOS) is available.
The Mini Micro Data Link System (M2DLS) is an advanced single unit digital data link system specifically designed for micro and small size platforms which are sensitive to Size, Weight and Power (SWaP). The M2DLS provides full duplex digital communication. The Gaussian-shaped Minimum Shift Keying (GMSK) digital modulation is used due to its constant envelope characteristic which allows the use of efficient power amplifiers which substantially reduces aircraft power consumption. The power consumption reduction is a critical factor for tactical unmanned platforms which are limited in power budget and provides high Data link performance with high fade margin.
The UHF/VHF Radio (UVR) is an advanced analog/digital data link system that has been specifically designed for manned and unmanned platforms to handle both audio and data transmission. The UVR’s open architecture enables transmitting audio and Ethernet signals. The UVR voice/data transceiver enables voice or data communication over VHF and UHF frequency band. The transceiver is software controlled implementing both analog and digital modulations. The transceiver supports wide frequency range from 30MHz to 512MHz utilizing various modulations. The lightweight transceiver design supports both ground and airborne installation. This solution consists of a multi-band, multi-mode transceiver, providing a clear and secure voice and data communications facilities over an extended frequency range.
SECONDARY LINK & FTS UHF
The Secondary Link is an advanced, long-range digital data link system that has been specifically designed for unmanned platforms. This versatile and cost-effective solution enables simplex narrow band digital link and a low rate communication in a signal channel UHF. The link is an affordable system that is suitable for any class of unmanned aerial platform: Mini, Small, Tactical and MALE/HALE UAS. It is small and light-weight, has a low power consumption and combines commercially proven technologies and standards with advanced algorithm, to provide excellent reliability and high performance. This solution consists of a single communication channel for commands to the UAV, and can act as a primary link, as a redundant link for backup purposes, or as a flight termination system (FTS). The UHF compact link is an optional part of the AMLS and IDLS-MK II systems.
