Link 22 Training Foundation

Link 22 Training Foundation course offers a variety of training programs to meet your applications of Link 22. Link 11 was adapted by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) officially the early 1960s as a Tactical Data Link defined it inside International Standardization Agreement (STANAG) 5511. United States adopted and defined Link 11 concepts as  Tactical Digital Information Link-A (TADIL-A).

Link 11 is an older tactical data link and does not offer today’s needed capabilities and performance desired  operational community. Link 16 is another old technology, a complex and robust tactical data link. Even Link 16 attempts to meet current operational requirements but it does not offer recently derived capabilities and operational concepts (ConOps) and it needs extensive planning and much more difficult to manage.

Link 22 offers the latest technology attempts to use COTS products. Link 22:

  • Provides a simple-to-use functions that require minimal operator interaction
  • As an excellent stand-alone tactical data link can interwork with Link 16
  • Link 22 enhances tactical data link capabilities
