Powering next-generation situational awareness systems for U.S. forces

Viasat’s mobile transceivers are currently outfitted on over 100,000+ tactical platforms within the U.S. military, delivering improved network efficiency and powering next-generation situational awareness systems, such as the Blue Force Tracking 2 (BFT2) program. By upgrading the U.S. Army and Marine Corps Blue Force Tracker capabilities, Viasat brings real-time situational awareness and better networking to the warfighter with BFT2. Viasat's next-generation BFT2 system provides: 

  • Faster position location information (PLI) refresh rates
  • Timely command & control (C2) communications across the battlefield
  • Improved network efficiency
  • Reduction in the Department of Defense total operational expenditure for the specified capability

Faster, more effective situational awareness from BFT2
