Advanced Data Link Simulator (ADLS)
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
The objective of this proposal is demonstrate the feasibility of developing a re-configurable electronic system to produce a programmable Advanced Data Link Simulator. LIT proposes a Phase I SBIR to demonstrate the feasibility of developing an adaptable,re-configurable Advanced Data Link Simulator Module (ADLS Module) using commercially available PLD based hardware and separate configuration files for each type of data link. The proposed ADLS Module is a Programmable Logic based PCB that can beincorporated, either directly or by carrier card, into simulation hardware and can be configured to emulate the desired data link. LIT further proposes developing a framework for the ADLS Module so that the modules operate uniformly regardless of thedata link being simulated.Besides Air Force systems, the ADLS Module can be used by Army, Navy, and Marine Corps for systems simulation. Since many data links are used over the entire U.S. Military, these links will not have to be developed by eachbranch. These modules will also give the military the capability of inter-branch warfare simulation using actual field hardware connected to the data link.LIT hopes to develop the Data Link Configuration files to use in configuring the ADLS Modules to emulate various data links.
