CHANTILLY, Va. & SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Engility Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: EGL) will introduce its new Tactical Data Link (TDL) Lite for Android and Windows during its JRE Operator’s Working Group conference in San Diego, California, March 7-8. This latest Engility innovation brings a streamlined and responsive user interface, reliable connectivity and functional support to in-theater operations through a user-friendly platform that is native for next-generation forces.
“As a leader in the data link community, Engility is dedicated to engineering new solutions that anticipate and address the evolving needs of our customers,” said Engility CEO Lynn Dugle. “This new TDL Lite option is just the latest example of how our team of experts relentlessly drives operational improvements and innovation to support our JRE community’s mission and to strengthen homeland defense and global security.”
In creating the TDL Lite platform, Engility is meeting the acquisition and operational requirements of the military in the following ways:
- Rightsized and ruggedized – Meets the size, weight and power (SWaP) needs for use in adverse environments by providing a small robust platform with a long battery life to support in-field missions.
- Greater efficiency – Android and Windows devices are readily available, and users, particularly next-gen military, are familiar with them, resulting in reduced training time and lower training costs.
- User friendly – The simple graphical user interface allows operators to configure the system quickly and easily. Android and Windows platforms natively support GPS and other location/motion sensor functionality needed in mission operations.
“Our JRE team is tenacious in its drive to continually seek new ways to enhance interoperability and situational awareness for our customers because we understand the critical role reliable data sharing plays in their missions to provide stability, security and safety around the world,” said Seth Stein, senior vice president and products account executive.
Since 1999, JRE has hosted this annual forum that brings together systems and software developers and operators within the data link community to foster greater understanding of JRE capabilities, discuss latest developments of evolving systems, and share best practices, trends and mission requirements.
