Network Protocols

The Government needs low- to high-speed communication solutions to implement various network protocols and analyze data. SDL designs and develops cost-effective data network systems and applications for network analysis and to convert custom (sensor) data formats to standard gigabit Ethernet for ground station manipulation.

Experience

Sky Lynx

Common Data Link Interface

SDL designed and developed Sky Lynx for receiving, synchronizing, routing, and simulating sensor-collected tactical/reconnaissance imagery and navigation data. Sky Lynx supports a variety of CDL and ATM based sensors and converts the data to Gigabit Ethernet for ground station processing and viewing.

NEXUS

Network Analysis Device

SDL designed and developed hardware for high-speed network routing and analysis.
