Networking for Tactical Radios with ViaSat Data Controllers

Networking for Tactical Radios with ViaSat Data Controllers

ViaSat Data Controllers (VDCs) work with all Combat Net Radios to deliver powerful, easy-to-use networking — even over severely degraded radio channels. Using a tactical radio, computer, and ViaSat Data Controller, you can send notes and files, share video, and run IP applications over wireless channels using an existing tactical radio. ViaSat Data Controllers enable networking over tactical radios, so you can access Situational Awareness data (e.g. FalconView, C2PC, etc), video and imagery on demand, chat, messaging, and whiteboard collaboration — as well as notes, files, and email with attachments. Lab and field test have repeatedly verified that the ViaSat Data Controllers are the highest-performance system for sending data over tactical radios, and works with all tactical radios available.

Fast, Simple Notes and Files

Send notes and files even over severely degraded radio channel - even over channels too noisy for voice. Lab and field tests have proven that ViaSat Data Controllers send notes and files up to twice as fast as competing products. Because ViaSat Data Controllers send your notes and files faster, they use less radio power during transmission, so your radio batteries last longer.

Easy, Powerful Networking

ViaSat Data Controllers extend networking beyond notes and files. With ViaSat Data Controllers, you can share streaming video, imagery on demand, whiteboard collaboration, and even use apps like FalconView and C2PC for Situational Awareness mapping.

Global Interoperability

ViaSat Data Controllers work with all major brands of tactical radios, so you are assured total interoperability across Harris, Thales, Rockwell, and all other US and coalition radios. ViaSat Data Controllers offer a simple way to bring networking to your coalition operations.

Field-Proven Reliability

ViaSat Data Controllers have been used around the world for over ten years. Over 15,000 warfighters have trusted ViaSat Data Controllers for dependable — even life-saving — networking over tactical radio.
