IDLS 2018 Theme
"Planning for Transformational Success"
The Data Links community continues to work within a world that is rapidly changing, from geopolitical, economic and technological points of view.
We are facing emerging military threats, such as the ever-increasing Ballistic Missile capability of North Korea, and cyber warfare tactics of non-Allied Nations. At the same time, we are moving towards the roll out of next generation Tactical Data Link (TDL) technologies, such as Link 22 and Link 16 capable radio development and expansion. The changes that are in front of us need to be effectively managed, to ensure that we achieve a high level of collaborative interoperability, within the constraints of our individual National defence procurement budgets.
