EL CAJON, Calif., 21 Jan. 2015. GET Engineering Corp. in El Cajon, Calif., is introducing the Virtual NTDS (V-NTDS) military communications method for use in place of Navy Tactical Data Systems (NTDS).

The V-NTDS is designed to reduce development and deployment costs by eliminating the need for dedicated NTDS adapters and bulky cables for NTDS shipboard networking communications.

Advantages include little to no modification of an existing NTDS application, no need for specialized NTDS converters, and it has an adaptable API that allows for continued use of certified applications with little or no modification.

The V-NTDS design provides emulation of standard NTDS operations. Separate channels for data and external interrupts are provided. Aborting conditions, timeouts, and other termination events are supported.

The product has the ability to perform data transactions between different NTDS Types. With V-NTDS, an NTDS Type A device can communicate with other parallel types (Type B/C/H) or even with NTDS Serial data types (Type D/E). This technology has not been previously available and opens realms for NTDS application development.
