NG produces a 4th to 5th terminal that includes IFDL and MADL that uses a lot of the F-35's CNI in it's architecture.

Freedom 550 is the only Type 1 certified production-ready radio providing both MADL (MultiFunction Advanced Data Link) and IFDL (Intra-Flight Data Link) interoperability and shares that data via J Series messages.

Remote electronics and a dual band multibeam aperture are also being developed to simultaneously handle both MADL
and IFDL waveforms. Freedom 550 will enable translation of F-22 and F-35 sensor data and provide the information to Link-16 participants. Freedom 550 is designed to support either two IFDL nets or one IFDL and one MADL net.

Freedom 550 leverages F-35 production and logistics infrastructure. Freedom 550 provides an effective way to address potential Diminishing Manufacturing Sources (DMS) and tech refresh challenges. Major Freedom 550 subcomponents are the same as those used in the F-35. This ensures an established economical supply base from a major program.

Features
• Uses F-35 CNI production hardware
• Uses F-35 CNI JTRS SCA-based software
• Certified NSA Type 1 Crypto
• SAP to Secret Write down
• Data At Rest Protection
• Housed in air-cooled chassis

Yes, but as it is written, it is via j-series (L-16) messages. Whatever, it would be fine if NATO transformation command and/or could find a common protocol (that would not be exclusive to national/proprietary protcols) (or trilateral strategic initiative...)

Since CNI is a software defined radio, a new protocol can be added with relative ease.
