Save this for later

ATLAS ELEKTRONIK announces another world première: at the end of October, three LINK22 systems were successfully configured to form a LINK22 Super Network.

The three systems were located in a shore station at the Bundeswehr Technical Center for Information Technology and Electronics (WTD 81 Greding), at TELEFUNKEN RACOMS (Ulm) and on board a Hämeenmaa class minelayer of the Finnish Navy sailing on a course from Kotka to Helsinki; this ship was equipped with the operational combat management system ANCS of ATLAS.

In this Super Network, it was for the first time possible to exchange data over a range of 1000 nautical miles (about 1850 kilometres) by using a new transmission technology (Waveform) developed by the company TELEFUNKEN RACOMS.

ATLAS ELEKTRONIK provided the Data Link Processor (DLP) L22 and the ATLAS Navy Combat Management System (ANCS) for all three stations.  In addition, ATLAS was responsible for integration of the ANCS and the DLP on board and at the shore station. Within the scope of the ongoing RFQ Multilink Finland bid, this world première represents an impressive and important step for ATLAS, demonstrating its competence in the field of Tactical Data Link technology yet again.

The Managing Directors of ATLAS ELEKTRONIK, Dieter Rottsieper and Kai Horten, commented: “This is an incredible achievement by the team. We congratulate all who, through their great personal commitment, contributed towards the success of this most remarkable world première.”
