Commtact unveils M2DLS data link system
Commtact has unveiled a newly developed Mini-Micro Data Link System (M2DLS) for aerial and ground applications.
M2DLS is an advanced and reliable combined digital data link system, specially designed for micro size platforms and sensors which have low size, weight and power requirements. The system supports up to six antennas simultaneously for multi-coverage support.
The system uses open architecture and enables full duplex wideband with cybersecurity protection, digital link, error correction techniques and high-rate communication in the uplink and downlink channels. It weighs 60g and its power transmission varies from 0.25 to 1 watt.
The 6x5x2cm M2DLS can be used as an airborne data terminal or ground data terminal system for small unmanned ground vehicles, small VTOL UAS, sensors and other platforms. It can download real-time video images, LAN, serial data and information from most available sensors.
Shai Palti, CEO at Commtact, said: ‘Combining proven technologies, miniaturisation and advanced algorithms, the M2DLS provides real-time secured information from micro unmanned platforms as well as from a range of different sensors and allows enhanced situational awareness for better decision making.
‘Commtact's high-end communication systems are installed on many of the UAVs in Israel, as well as on other different manned and unmanned platforms in Israel and abroad.’
