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 that complied with most requirements, 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 Commtact AMLS and IDLS-MK II systems.
