Rockwell-Collins Awarded Contract To Supply Data Links For Spanish Navy
A $700,000 contract to supply five Data Automatic Link 11 sets to the Spanish Navy has been awarded to Rockwell International Corporation's Collins Defense Communications (CDC). Under the 14-month agreement, five Spanish Navy Baleares Class frigates will be modernized with CDC's latest Technical Data System Link 11 equipment, including the TE-237P-1A programmable data terminal set that carries the U.S. nomenclature AN/ USQ-92, and the 373E-2 Data Terminal Set Control (C-11494/U).
Both units are state-of-the-art communications microprogrammable processor technology, and are NATO-compatible, having previously been deployed by five other NATO navies.
Link 11 is a long-range, digital data communications network connecting widely spaced elements of a task force. It provides technical data exchange among surface vessels, shore stations, and aircraft. This exchange of data provides a wider range of surveillance, and multiple reporting of radar tracks in fringe areas, for the command and control of weapons systems, air intercept, and air defense.
