Tactical data links provide communication via radio waves or cable used by NATO nations. This joint project between the Army and the Royal Navy as part of the military digitalisation will enable more effective sharing of battlefield data to neutralise targets at speed, and consists of two separate but mutually reinforcing data links – Link 16 and Bowman Data.

Fitted to the Wildcat helicopter, it will significantly reduce the time it takes to pass vital information around the battlespace quicker, and therefore make the Wildcat a more effective overhead surveillance system.

SA Group is pleased to be part of this innovative project.
