3SDL has provided support to the Finnish Navy during the recent Sea Acceptance Testing onboard the 1,450 ton Minelayer FNS Uusimaa. The work was performed as part of the company’s ongoing support contract for the procurement and test of a new Multi-Link Data Link Processor (M-DLP FN) system supplied by Selex ES.

The M-DLP FN system is to be integrated into the majority of combat ships in the Finnish Navy. The Finnish Ministry of Defence (MoD) is acquiring a Multi-Link Tactical Data Link (TDL) solution for the navy, allowing it to exploit the interoperability benefits offered by fully integrating Link 22, MIDS/Link 16 and JREAP; the M-DLP FN, which includes provides total tactical interoperability among different Data Links, is a vital aspect of delivering these capabilities

The recent week-long trials saw a series of tests carried out involving Link 22, MIDS/Link 16 and JREAP took place in the Finnish Archipelago and Northern Baltic Sea comprising several national sea, air and land platforms.

Tom Vart, senior consultant at 3SDL, said: ‘The Sea Acceptance Testing provided an invaluable opportunity to test Link 16, 22 and JREAP, both CIU and Data Forwarding, in a ‘real’ scenario at sea onboard an operational warship. 3SDL was extremely pleased to be involved in these vital trials.’
