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). As effective solution for most requirements known today, 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 IDLS-MK II is required to enable secured communication between equipment mounted on an Airborne/Maritime or any remote platform and a central station. The Ground Data Terminal (GDT) can be stand alone on a tripod, installed on a HQ vehicle or on a roof. The IDLS-MK II supports downlink which includes high bandwidth data from the remote platform to the GCS. The IDLS-MK II supports uplink to the remote platform and commands from the GCS. The IDLS-MK II maintains the link during all parts of the mission as long as LOS is kept.
