Hensoldt delivers upgraded MIDS-LVT for testing

26th July 2018 - 16:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Hensoldt has delivered upgraded Multifunctional Information Distribution System (MIDS) terminals to the German military for risk reduction testing, the company announced on 20 July.

The Bundeswehr has used MIDS Low Volume Terminals (MIDS-LVT) since the early 2000s for secure and protected mobile tactical communication via Link-16. They now require a Block Upgrade 2 (BU2) under which the terminals' hardware and software will be modernised to significantly increase data throughput and to adapt crypto components and frequency management.

Hensoldt is carrying out the conversion of almost 400 MIDS terminals for the German armed forces. The project includes the integration of modified or renewed assemblies and components under the responsibility of the EuroMIDS partner companies, as well as the subsequent re-qualification of the modified terminals.

The terminals delivered will be used to carry out technical investigations, integration and qualification on the working platforms, including Tornado, Eurofighter, A400M, frigates, corvettes, joint fire support team and the Link-16 radio network.
