Multifunctional Information Distribution System Joint Tactical Radio System

Data Link Solutions LLC and ViaSat Inc, are being awarded a $123 million each in separate contracts that include production, development and sustainment of the Multifunctional Information Distribution System (MIDS) Joint Tactical Radio Systems (JTRS) terminals, US Department of defense said in a statement Thursday.

The MIDS JTRS terminal is a four-channel software defined radio that delivers existing Link 16 with concurrent multi-netting-4 and tactical air navigation functionality, as well as three channels for future growth, including JTRS advanced networking waveforms such as tactical targeting network technology, multifunction advanced data link, intra-flight data link and other advanced networking waveforms.

The MIDS JTRS terminal is a line-of-sight radio system for collecting and transmitting broadband, jam-resistant, secure data and voice across a variety of air, sea and ground platforms. Both the contracts are expected to be completed June 2020.
