DLS receives US MIDS-LVT order

14th August 2015 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Data Link Solutions (DLS) has been awarded a contract by the US Navy Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command to supply Multifunctional Information Distribution System Low Volume Terminals (MIDS-LVT) to the US and international militaries. DLS is a joint venture between Rockwell Collins and BAE Systems.

The fixed-price delivery order contract is valued at $18.3 million and will see DLS provide MIDS-LVT to the US Air National Guard, Navy, Air Force and various foreign governments through the US Department of Defense's foreign military sales programme.

The jam-resistant MIDS-LVT is a vital component of Link 16 data exchange networks. It supports voice communications and the exchange of real-time situational awareness information across ground, maritime and air platforms.

Jack Stevens, product line director, communications and navigation solutions, BAE Systems, said: ‘We’re helping to ensure that our troops and allies have access to the real-time information they need to complete their missions and operate with US and coalition forces. Our team is leading the delivery of combat-proven Link 16 MIDS terminals to allied forces worldwide.’
