The fog of war. The chaos of combat. On the battlefield, you have only seconds to spot and identify a friend or foe on the horizon before deciding whether or not to engage – all while risking being fired upon. In today’s conflicts, friendly fire is a growing risk, as warfighters face split-second life-or-death decisions.
Viasat plays a vital role in preventing friendly fire to save lives by powering the next-generation Blue Force Tracking 2, and Situational Awareness SATCOM and line-of-sight communications for the U.S. and allied forces.
