ViaSat has received a contract worth $20 million from Boeing to deliver its KOR-24A Small Tactical Terminals (STT) for integration onto the AV-8B Harrier attack aircraft, the company announced on 22 May.

The terminals are for integration onto Harriers for the US Marine Corps (USMC) and international customers.

The ViaSat KOR-24A STT is a Link 16 and Soldier Radio Waveform capable terminal. It is designed to allow helicopters, ground vehicles, and other platforms to switch waveforms and network connections on the fly, merging disparate networks and delivering situational awareness to edge operators as the mission unfolds.

The STT will allow the USMC's Harriers to better coordinate with other US and allied aircraft and allied ground forces in order to rapidly engage enemy targets with reduced risk of fratricide or collateral damage.
