Data link systems capabilities & products


The Tactical Airborne Command, Control, Communications and Intelligence Pod (TACPOD)™ provides a robust, non-invasive payload for tactical communications exchange in an airborne-qualified pod for external mounting to manned or unmanned aircraft.

From ground operators at the tactical edge to convoys, command centres and other participating aircraft, multiple users will benefit as the TACPOD™ – with its Battlefield Integrated Gateway for Tactical Exchange (BIGTEX)™ software – relays, bridges, translates, distributes and manages current and legacy data, voice and video.

From the lower altitudes of the mid-tier aerial network to the upper tier at 65,000 to 70,000 ft, the TACPOD™ provides communications relay and tactical data link gateway services over large, widely-dispersed and often austere environments, in support of warfighters.
