CANDL provides a single data link solution for communications requiring high reliability, such as Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) payload data and command and control (C2). It enables air-to-air and air-to-ground Ad Hoc Networking as well as relaying for beyond line of sight (BLOS) capability, thus enabling capabilities such as Manned Unmanned Teaming (MUMT) and Live Virtual Constructive (LVC) training.

8Mbps data rate with additional safety features for C2, dynamic Ad Hoc Networking communication, motion video and digital voice capability are all integrated in one Software Defined Radio-based compact airworthy terminal.

CANDL covers Nato IV C-band as well as World Radiocommunication Conference (WRC) 2012 defined civil UAS C2 frequency band in single housing enabling both military and civil UAS applications.
