Thales Claims Datalink Interoperability First

TMA 6000 Certified for Both European and US Use

Thales says its TMA 6000 datalink terminal has become the first – and presently only – product of its kind to comply with both US and European implementations of NATO’s STANAG 7085 standard.

The high-data-rate line-of-sight terminal operates in the NATO Ku band and can transmit real-time video, as well as radar and electromagnetic data, from an airborne platform to receivers on the ground or on naval vessels over hundreds of kilometres. The device was certified as compliant with the US’s implementation of STANAG 7085 in 2014, and, following the successful conclusion of tests by the French defence procurement agency, DGA, achieved European certification at the end of last year.

Thales’s TMA 6000 has been tested in extreme environments and meets the highest military standards,” said Bruno Kerjean, the company’s head of development for TMA and micro-TMA terminals. “It is the world’s most reliable field-proven data communication system for large platforms. Backed by more than twenty years of engineering work across three generations of products, the TMA 6000 offers an extremely reliable and robust European datalink solution. With dual compliance, it is ready to meet the most demanding requirements of the platforms of tomorrow.

The TMA 6000 is already in service on platforms including unmanned aircraft, aircraft carriers and the Dassault Rafale fighter. (Thales)
