The Multi-Tactical Data Link Network (MTN) passes information and data automatically and rapidly between military platforms and systems within joint and coalition taskgroups. The MTN is critical to the common tactical and common operating pictures that enable battlefield coordination.

The Multi-Tactical Data Link Network (MTN) Sub Program within the C4 Program will upgrade and support mission critical systems of the ADF MTN and associated facilities to enable ADF command and control for single service, joint and multi-national operations. These critical systems will be implemented on warfighting platforms, in support and management locations and at strategic link points for the ADF. The acquisition programme will upgrade existing communication systems and introduce new communication mediums, whilst the sustainment of in-service systems across the ADF will be through a single support organisation for ADF TDL systems.

Key acquisition activities will include the implementation of Enhanced Link 16, Link 22 and advanced Common Data Link functionality on many platforms to enhance ADF operations and ensure critical systems integration within a joint or multi-national taskgroup.

Key sustainment activities are to support the supply, repair, and upgrade of common tactical data link equipment for all three services through a single MTN Sustainment team.
