CANDL – Compact Airborne Networking Data Link

Patria will exhibit high performance networking data link solution: CANDL is a data link system for networking applications such as Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), Manned-Unmanned Teaming (MUMT), Intra-Flight Data Link (IFDL) and Live Virtual Constructive training (LVC). It provides reliable long-range communication between up to 24 members in the same network.

Network configuration is automatic allowing dynamic joining/leaving of new members in the network as well as extending range to beyond line of sight by relaying data. Data communication is encrypted, and additionally it is possible to use internal COMSEC hardware module as well.

CANDL has full Internet Protocol compatibility, therefore integration with any modern platforms is easy and there are no limitations for transmitted date types (e.g. C2, voice, HD video and DIS/HLA are supported).
