With every soldier acting as a node on the network, there is no single point of failure.


When it comes to the ground domain, today’s military needs to deny adversaries the ability to disrupt, degrade, and deny communications. The ability to seamlessly roam between Primary, Alternate, Contingent, and Emergency (PACE) Communications becomes even more critical, enabling information sharing from the individual solider on the battlefield to a team, or a vehicle, or mission control at the command post.

Enabling tactical networking capabilities

Throughout every stage of a mission

As commanders and warfighters need to share and disseminate information to military forces everywhere, Viasat’s secure SATCOM and data link systems help ensure that actionable intelligence and mission orders reach warfighters and platforms across the ground domain. Viasat powers C2 and C4I networks like U.S. Army WIN-T, U.S. Army BFT-2, U.S. Air Force GBS, DISA Teleports, NATO SGS, and many more. 

It is imperative that ground forces have the capability to interact with Close Air Support aircraft to quickly and efficiently communicate the position of the enemy as well as their own location. With Viasat’s line-of-sight communications, JTACs, FACs, and TACPs can now directly and digitally call for fire and provide all platforms and nodes with accurate situational awareness for an integrated air/ground Common Operational Picture.

When disaster strikes, Viasat’s technologies can be quickly deployed to deliver fast, reliable, secure internet and voice communications in situations when existing infrastructure is destroyed or overloaded, or to locations beyond the reach of traditional communications networks. Whether it is mobile location tracking and messaging for your city’s emergency vehicles, or quickly deploying high-speed internet for rescue mission coordination at a remote location, count on Viasat for critical connectivity in disaster relief and humanitarian aid operations.

When you need to maintain command and control while conducting Security Force Assistance Brigade (SFAB) missions with allied and partner nations, count on Viasat’s end-to-end communications capabilities. We deliver modernized solutions that support these highly specialized and ever-expanding security roles across the globe – even in highly degraded communications environments. 

In the fog of war, mobile warfighters need fast, real-time access to information, commanders, and other operators. Viasat delivers on-the-move satellite and line-of-sight communications capabilities to ground tactical edge operators. Rely on Viasat’s Link 16 tactical data link system for line-of-sight communications and high capacity SATCOM networking for situational awareness.

On the pause and at the halt, Viasat’s beyond-line-of-sight and line-of-sight communications capabilities helps ground operators to establish assured connectivity to forward-deployable operations.
