Conference Proceeding
The article presents an accurate and fair assessment of the overall tactical network status both in the aviation and the surface communities. Several initiatives are under way to address tactical data links (TDLs) and network-centric warfare (NCW) operations at the tactical level with a goal of improving NCW for the war fighter. The TDL road map will provide a view of the U.S. Navy commitment to evolving, implementing, testing, certifying and fielding TDL systems. In September 2003, the multifunctional information distribution system-low volume terminal was authorized by the Chief of Naval Operation for full F/A-18 fleet introduction.
