PRODUCTS

As a result of its significant system development experience and R&D programs, ISI Hellas is able to provide, off the self, a set of standard data link and simulation related products. These can be provided and configured as stand-alone software applications, single or multiple data link applications on a card, or complete integrated systems with tactical displays suitable for land, sea or airborne platforms.

These include:

  • Standard Data Links: such as, Link 1, Link 11A, Link 11B, Link 16, IJMS and ATDL 1.
     
  • Mission Integration & Management System (MIMS): which is an integrated mission/combat system for all types of Maritime Patrol Aircraft (MPA) aircraft and applications, that has been designed and developed in its entirety by ISI Hellas. MIMS is an open architecture system that interfaces with any combination of sensors (Radar, EO/IR, EW/ELINT, ASW/ACINT, MAD, AIS etc.), with tactical data links (Link 11, Link 16, Link 22 or any other NATO or National data Link desired by the customer), with the aircraft’s weapon systems and its tactical subsystems (INS/GPS, FMS etc.). The system manages the data from all the various sensors and subsystems, performs data fusion and creates the Common Operational Picture which is presented to the Tactical Coordinator (TACCO), providing him with the capability to perform his surveillance, identification and command & control tasks.
     
  • Universal Link System (ULS): a sophisticated data link router and forwarder that can be configured to include all NATO standard Data Links in any combination required by the customer. The system provides scalability and expandability from a single data link unit to a multi-link network centric hub for an air defense command center. The ULS is capable of supporting multiple consoles for C3I functions and can be configured to accept multiple sensor inputs such as ESM and Radar. The system performs seamless forwarding of data between and among the active data links and provides a robust filtering scheme that can be applied to any data link.
     
  • Multiple Tactical Data Link Planning System (MTPS): that implements an advanced Joint and Coalition Planning Capability (JCPC). The system is capable of planning single link and multi-link architectures for any or all of the common data links in use by Coalition Forces today and automatically generates the OPTASKLINK by consolidating the inputs from various network plans. The MTPS is easily expandable for the addition of new data links, such as Link 22.Universal Test and Training System (UTTS) that provides a Distributed Interactive Simulation (DIS) based, comprehensive, time synchronized, simulation capability for testing Tactical Data Systems (TDS) and training the operators for those systems. The UTTS provides scripted stimulation of all TDS external interfaces in an interactive environment.
     
  • High Frequency Implementation Solution (HFIS): special equipment that allows a unit to operate in a Link 11 network with non-co-located receiver and transmitter and a single Data Terminal Set (split-site) as either Net Control Station or a Participating Unit.
     
  • Simulators and Trainers: for all of the standard NATO Data Links.
     
  • Radar Video Simulator (RVSM): that provides realistic tracks and plots, in digital or PPI video, based on scripted digital simulation data.
