Cubic announced on December 8 that it was tasked by the US Navy's Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR to develop an upgrade to the circuit card systems used on the AN/USQ-167 Common Data Link System (CDLS).

This development effort, with funding up to $1.3 million, has the potential to significantly extend the system life in support of U.S. Naval operations.

The data link system significantly increases the delivery speed and the volume of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance data and video that can be processed aboard U.S. Navy aircraft carriers and large-deck amphibious assault ships.

The Navy's CDL system allows naval operators to track aircraft in any location relative to the vessel. It also provides 15 different waveforms needed to communicate with U.S. Air Force, Army and coalition aircraft sensors in a network-centric manner, said Mike Twyman, senior vice president, Communications and Intelligence Surveillance & Reconnaissance (ISR) division of Cubic Defense Applications.
