Data Links - Network-Enabled Tactical Link System (NETLS)
NETLS is deployed as a command and control data link system. It receives, processes, stores, translates, formats and transmits data over multiple data links. The system also simultaneously provides remote control of communications equipment.
Open architecture that meets future needs
Featuring a networked, OSA using the latest commercial products, NETLS is engineered for growth. The system consists of only commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware and operationally proven software modules. It is comprised of two subsystems: the NETLS data manager (DM), and the NETLS common operational picture (COP). NETLS DM and NETLS COP can function as a complete command and control (C2) system or can function as a data link manager to an enterprise command, control, communications, computers, and intelligence (C4I) system.
NETLS is part of an extended family of Harris tactical data link products that have been in service for over 25 years. It has been deployed with the U.S. Armed Forces, North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), and other countries in a variety ofmaritime, aviation, and land-based applications. It has been installed on surface ships, aircraft, submarines, and mobile command centers. NETLS is capable of interfacing with a broad range of legacy, forward-deployed and mobile systems.
