IP Support

TacLink can provide an IP front-end to non-IP tactical devices. This allows legacy radio systems to participate in modern IP-based tactical networks. Additionally, TacLink can route among any of its three interfaces: Host, Channel 1 or Channel 2.

TacLink products are compatible with legacy (non-IP based) applications and networks.


TacLink is intended for military use in ruggedized systems. TacLink complies with MIL-STD-810G and MIL-STD-461 requirements.


TacLink products have been successfully fielded in various tactical systems since the early 1990s. More than 80,000 TacLink products have been deployed in a wide range of joint and multiservice applications.


TacLink products are available via the GSA Schedule at gsaadvantage.gov.
