Latest News : Ultra awarded contract to deliver MDLMS to three destroyers of the Republic of Korea Navy

Ultra Electronics Advanced Tactical Systems (ATS) was recently awarded a contract to deliver Ultra’s Multi Data Link Management System (MDLMS) to three destroyers for the Republic of Korea Navy. The MDLMS provide the ability to communicate tactical information over a secure, jam-resistant data link using the latest Multifunctional Information Distribution System Joint Tactical Radio System (MIDS JTRS) terminals.

In partnership with Hanwha Systems Co. and supporting the Republic of Korea Defence Acquisition Program Administration (DAPA), the modernization of these destroyers will go through full standards conformance testing of its new Link 16 suite. MDLMS will provide the Republic of Korea Navy with enhanced interoperability with United States Navy maritime and airborne platforms via its certified gateway using the same router installed in Ultra’s flagship product; the Air Defense Systems Integrator (ADSI)®.

Upon successful completion of this program, up to six additional destroyers are planned to be upgraded.

Tim Stanley, ATS President, stated:

“I am pleased to be partnering Hanwha Systems and look forward to continuing our work with the Republic of Korea. This contract underscores our continuing growth and expanding relationships with international partners to bring state of the art Command and Control, sensor correlation and certified datalink gateway functionality into the battlespace.”
