NATO - ANEP-82
MESSAGE SPECIFICATION FOR DATA LINK BETWEEN COMBAT MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS AND IDATS
|Publication Date:||14 October 2019|
The IDATS is used by the NATO FORACS Project1 to collect and process sensor data during sensor accuracy tests. Sensor data are collected either by observing the measurements and entering them to IDATS through dedicated hand-held devices or by transmission from the ship's Combat Management System (CMS) to an IDATS Interface Computer (IDATS-IC). This document describes the protocol and the message syntax for transmission of CMS sensor data to the IDATS-IC.
The implementation of the filtering system (how it acquires the data from the CMS, how it filters them, etc.) is the CMS vendor's responsibility in accordance with the nation's interests and requirements.
