Kratos Defense & Security Solutions’ subsidiary Kratos RT Logic has licensed its common data link (CDL) waveforms to Harris Corporation for use in Harris’ nanoSVDL radios, Kratos announced on 15 October.

The radios are being delivered to the US Air Force under Harris' five-year, $130 million, IDIQ contract, to develop and deliver Hand Held Video Data Link radios that support video data links and real-time ISR communications in challenging tactical environments.

Kratos’ tactical communication waveforms are fully integrated into the programmable radios. They receive and process real-time ISR information and full-motion video sent from airborne platforms— such as UAS— as well as other sources to soldiers on the ground.

The waveforms enhance interoperability, enabling the mobile network to connect ground, airborne and naval forces via multiple tactical host platforms. The software-defined waveforms offer security features for data protection and jamming resistance.
