Overview

Smiths Interconnect has a diverse line of rugged, high accuracy Directional Narrowband Systems that provide high data-rate Tactical Common Datalink (TCDL) communications for fixed ground applications and On-The-Move applications such as those encountered on military aircraft, naval vessels, and mobile ground vehicles. Our standard product line includes antenna system products that are scaleable in frequency, and offers superior performance for mission requirements in the L, S, C, X, Ku and Ka frequency bands.

Smiths Interconnect’s Datalink product line delivers high data rate communications capability to current operational forces while providing a solid architectural baseline for the
migration of these systems to support future Homeland Security objectives and various other critical military programs.

Transit cases can also be supplied to protect these assemblies while in transit to the operations site Smith Interconnect’s microprocessor-based Antenna Control Unit (ACU) is designed to provide cost-effective control of the antenna positioner assembly. The integrated controller can operate over an RS-232, RS-485, Ethernet or Fiber Optic interface.

The Windows-based software provides a programmable, man-machine interface and allows for complete control of all antenna system functionality and operational modes that include Standby, Point, Step, Slew, Jog, Sector Scan and Program Track. The combination of small size, rapid deployment, high data-rate performance and dynamic capability directly benefit the tactical user community by providing a scaleable datalink communication asset able to fulfill future Wideband Line-of-Site, and Beyond-Line-Site secure communication at high data rates.
