Data Link Solutions to provide U.S. and foreign militaries with MIDS-LVT systems

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa, 14 Aug. 2012. Data Link Solutions, a communications company based in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, has been selected to provide the U.S. Navy and several foreign militaries with the multifunctional information distribution system - low volume terminals (MIDS-LVT). The MIDS-LVT enables secure, jam resistant, high capacity, digital data and voice communications capability. The contract is valued at $18.5 million.

The MIDS LVT provides airborne, ground and maritime links for communication on the battlefield. It features secure, jam-resistant connectivity for digital data and voice communications and provides a distributed network with control service and NATO interoperability. The terminal features pseudo-random frequency hopping over 51 frequencies and can have an expanded data rate of 2 megabits per second. The MIDS LVT uses two antennas to trasmit and receive data. The terminal also features encryption and navigation capabilities.

The MIDS LVT is also compatible with the Joint Tactical Information Distribution System, an older version of the MIDS that is seen in some legacy systems. Used on many different vehicles, the MIDS LVT can be deployed for ground, airborne and maritime applications.

These systems will be used by the United States, Saudi Arabia, Finland, and the Republic of Korea.

Work for this contract will be performed in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and Wayne, N.J. Work for this contract is expected to be completed by February 2015.
