ABSTRACT: The ability to simulate Tactical Data Links is becoming increasingly important in order to more accurately represent the modern battlespace. There is also a need to be able to connect with or simulate commercial use data links such as ADSB and AIS. LVC applications may rely on the integration between simulation systems and real data links in order to integrate live entities into a simulated scenario in applications ranging from test and evaluation to training. There is also a growing number of COTS simulation tools available that support integration with
This paper will discuss the need for inclusion of a data link FOM module in the upcoming RPRFOM v 3.0 which supports various data links such as Link 11, Link 16 and the upcoming Link 22. The paper also discusses the need for supporting a more generic interaction with data links that would enable integration of various simulation CGF components with less effort and enable COTS tools to evolve with a broader support for dif erent data links.
