When You Need Clarity in the Chaos of Combat

Next-Generation Tactical Data Links/Link 16

A New Era in Link 16 Communications

In the chaos of combat, you only have seconds to identify a friend from foe before deciding whether or not to engage. Whether you are a single dismounted ground warfighter or a pilot supporting the fight from the sky, you can now see a complete air/ground Link 16 picture with all operators and assets accounted for—even at the most remote edges of the battlefield.

Extreme Reliability for Extreme Missions 

With Viasat’s family of next-generation tactical data links, we’re keeping the most disadvantaged tactical edge user at the forefront of our innovations and bringing new advantages that previously did not exist. 


Extending the Edge

By packaging the most advanced capabilities into the smallest form factors, every warfighter, platform, and node can leverage the nearly worldwide presence of Link 16 to create an even more robust network and gain the real-time situational awareness that's critical to mission success.

  • Most dynamic range of interoperable Link 16 terminals currently available on the market, including the world's only handheld Link 16 radio 
  • Embeddable radios optimized for extremely low size, weight, and power requirements for platforms that have traditionally lacked Link 16 network access
  • Software-upgradable designs to minimize hardware changes and platform downtime
