Curtiss-Wright introduces HUNTR
Curtiss-Wright’s Defense Solutions’ Tactical Communications Group (TCG) has introduced a new intelligent tactical data link translation gateway.
HUNTR (TDL Hub and Network Translator) provides TDL translation gateway for Link 16, Variable Message Format (VMF), Cursor-On-Target (CoT), Joint Range Extension Applications Protocol, Situational Awareness Data Link and Cooperative ESM Operations (CESMO).
The solutions significantly improves and simplifies the real-time translation and routing of TDLs, providing soldiers and command and control centres with real-time access to accurate operational data in the field.
HUNTR supports the automatic routing, forwarding and translation of J-Series, K-Series, CoT, and CESMO messages and automates processing and translation of multiple, simultaneous Digitally-Aided Close Air Support missions between ground JTAC kits equipped with VMF or CoT radios and air/land/sea Link 16 assets.
Designed to run on any Microsoft Windows 10 supported platform, HUNTR delivers instant integration and interoperability for multiple heterogeneous TDLs. The HUNTR software can be used in air, ground, sea, base stations, mobile land platforms and C2 centre applications.
