Seeing the complete air/ground Link 16 picture (sponsored video)
This video is brought to you by Viasat.
Whether you are a single dismounted 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.
Part of Viasat’s family of next-generation tactical data links, the Battlefield Awareness Targeting System–Dismounted (BATS-D) AN/PRC-161 handheld radio removes mission uncertainty and quickens the pace of battle by instantly and accurately sharing the location of dismounted and enemy forces from the ground directly to Close Air Support pilots and other Link 16 operators.
