urtiss-Wright's Defense Solutions division, a trusted supplier
of tactical data link (TDL) software and hardware solutions,
recently announced that it supported General Atomics
Aeronautical Systems' (GA-ASI) recent demonstration of
the first successful exchange of Link 16 TDL data over Global
Command and Control System - Maritime (GCCS-M) from an
unmanned aircraft system (UAS) to U.S. Navy surface ships.
The demo took place during U.S. Pacific Fleet's (PACFLT)
Unmanned Integrated Battle Problem '21 (UxS IBP 21) in San
Diego, California. In support of the demo, Curtiss-Wright performed
rapid integration of its proven TCG LinkPRO®
TDL
processing software for the GA-ASI MQ-9A Block 5 UAS. During
UxS IBP, the UAS acted as a surrogate for the MQ-9B SeaGuardian,
providing Link 16 data communications capability
both in the air and on the ground.
" This was the first UAS application in a Navy exercise for
the proven capabilities of LinkPRO software and enabled us to
highlight our rapid integration capabilities, " said Chris Wiltsey,
Senior Vice President and General Manager, CurtissWright
Defense Solutions. " We look forward to growing opportunities
to support unmanned aerial platforms with our
high-fidelity TDL processing engine. "
During the UxS IBP 21 exercise, General Atomics was able
to demonstrate the following TDL capabilities for the MQ-9
UAS using LinkPRO software:
* Operated as the Link 16 Network Time Reference. The MQ9's
long loiter time and advantaged position of elevation allowed
it to hold the network together and eliminate communication
loss and fragmented networks.
* Provided buoy locations, subsurface contacts, and subsurface
tracks to be detected and shared with P-8s and the entire
network.
* Provided on-call buoy drops for key tactical situations and
shared the buoy data over Link 16.
* Propagated surface tracks from the MQ-9's internal maritime
radar capability to Link 16.
* Shared track management information with other network
participants as they on-boarded and off-boarded the mission.
* MQ-9's Link 16 datalink operators were able to perform their
function from the safety of ground-based locations.
The turboprop-powered, multi-mission MQ-9A Remotely
Piloted Aircraft (RPA) was first flown in 2001. MQ-9A has an
endurance of over 27 hours, speeds of 240 KTAS, can operate
up to 50,000 feet, and has a 3,850 pound (1746 kilogram) payload
capacity that includes 3,000 pounds (1361 kilograms) of
external stores. The aircraft provides a long-endurance, persistent
surveillance/strike capability for the warfighter.

ritish threat detection specialist Silent Sentinel has signed a
contract with a South Asian customer to provide their Jaegar
Ranger 225 Long-Range Uncooled (LWIR) thermal cameras for
security along a mountainous border. Silent Sentinel will provide
50 Jaegar Ranger 225 LWIR thermal cameras, which will be deployed
along a Central Asian border spanning several hundred
kilometers. The Jaegar's unique through-shaft allows a radar to sit
above the PTU, enabling uninterrupted 360° continuous rotation
ideal for detection and tracking applications. For this particular
application, the customer requested a custom dark green color
befitting the surroundings of the installations, and Silent Sentinel
