The STT is a two-channel radio designed to meet the needs of users who have size, weight and power (SWaP) constraints, but also need simultaneous access to Link 16 and either wideband UHF or legacy VHF/UHF. Having both channels in one terminal enables users to consume tactical information from a ground network, such as the Single Channel Ground and Airborne Radio System (SINCGARS) or Soldier Radio Waveform (SRW), and pass that information over to Link 16 and vice versa, creating a seamless improved situational awareness and a common operational picture between air and ground forces. It also affords SWaP constrained platforms that need to upgrade to Link 16 a path to add the STT in place of a legacy VHF/UHF radio while maintaining the legacy radio capability using the STT's second channel without impacting platform SWaP. The terminal is packaged in an affordable, industry standard compact form factor and is ruggedized to meet demanding environmental requirements. For more information, visit
