Why choose DLS?

While others make promises for Link 16 technology tomorrow, DLS is making deliveries worldwide today.

In today's battlefield environment, wars are being waged on multiple fronts against an enemy that is widespread, unconventional and omnipresent. Within all theaters, accurate decisions must be timely, and interoperability between U.S. and Coalition Forces is necessary.

A joint venture between BAE Systems and Collins Aerospace, DLS is a leading supplier of Link 16 terminals and software, as well as logistics and support services for air, land, and sea-based platforms. The company has a heritage of more than 20 years of Link 16 design and production experience, with more than 9,000 Link 16 systems delivered worldwide to more than 30 nations.
