Havelsan’s National Technologies Prove Themselves at NATO Exercise

Date: Issue 94 - September 2019

July 12, 2019. Under the leadership of NATO’s Allied Transformation Command, the CWIX 2019 exercise took place last month at the Joint Force Training Center in Bydgoszcz, Poland. The interoperability between command and control capabilities and information technology services were tested in the exercise.

During the exercise, there was a remarkable development for the new generation combat management system - ADVENT - developed by Havelsan and the Naval Forces Command. The ADVENT Tactical Data Link Module (DLP) has proven itself to operate in full compatibility with NATO countries’ tactical data link systems.

The ADVENT Tactical Data Link Module successfully performed all functions and tactical data exchange that determine the standards of NATO member countries in the military field over Link 11, Link 16 and Link 22 networks during the tests made with special systems for Finland, Spain, Germany, Czech Republic, Italy, Denmark, USA and NATO. It was demonstrated that it can work in 100 percent compatibility with NATO ACCS, NATO IOTA and Cloud 22 reference systems.

In line with these developments, Turkey’s tactical data link capability at the FMN Spiral 2 level was certified.

In addition, the Havelsan products Harbiye Command Control Information System, CBRN Information System, Kaşif Geographic Information System and allied troop tracking systems also passed successfully the data exchange tests with other country systems performed in accordance with NATO standards.

The first official version of the ADVENT Combat Management System was released and launched this year.

Developed by Turkish engineers with nearly 6 million lines of code, ADVENT is considered to be one of the world’s leading advanced combat management systems.
