BigDataExelis and NovaSol have concluded a month-long evaluation of a free-space optical communications platform intended to help  the U.S. Navy transfer data while in the field.

The Tactical Line-of-Sight Optical Network system is included in the Office of Naval Research‘s plans to add networks, software and other information technology components into warfare strategy building, Exelis said Monday.

“Free-space optical communications systems provide fighting forces with a high-capacity data link that is not reliant on hardline connections, such as fiber cables,“ said Joe Rambala, vice president and general manager of integrated electronic warfare systems at Exelis.

“As the battlefield becomes more data-driven, ensuring warfighters are equipped with the information they need, whenever and wherever they need it, is critical to mission success,“ Rambala added.

The Naval Research Laboratory helped carry out the three-phase assessment to test how the ruggedized platform works to wirelessly transfer images and videos at 100 megabits per second over a 31 miles distance from both mobile and stationary positions and in high-wind situations.

TALON was also able to maintain a data link for two Marine Corps Tactical Elevated Antenna Mast Systems.

The tests took place at the Naval Air Weapons Station in China Lake, Calif.; Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, Calif.; and the NRL’s Chesapeake Bay Detachment in Maryland.

The network communications system is part of a Future Naval Capability vehicle.
