Northrop Grumman’s advanced multi-TDL system provides vital connectivity between legacy fourth-generation platforms and advanced fifth-generation platforms, as well as future data links and networks.

“Northrop Grumman has extensive experience in networking and tactical data links across multidomain forces, and a robust capability roadmap that will deliver increasingly enhanced data link technology in the years ahead,” said Chris Deeble, chief executive, Northrop Grumman Australia.

“The Northrop Grumman engineers that delivered the F-35 Multifunction Advanced Data Link and communications, navigation and identification technologies will now be developing the ADF’s future TDL technology.”

Northrop Grumman said that their technology is critical as forces seek to maximize the long-term value of existing platforms and systems by making certain that they can interoperate with emergent fifth-generation capabilities.  

The company said in a release that the awarding of the three-year contract “advances the long-term relationship between Northrop Grumman and ADFTA”.
