Viasat has delivered the 200th unit of a compact multi-network communications tool designed to transmit real-time tactical situational awareness data and secure voice messages with Link 16 systems.

The Move Out / Jump Off Link 16 expeditionary tactical gateway suite will work to provide air and ground situational awareness data and translate incompatible messages from disparate satellite communications networks through the use of a Small Tactical Terminal unit, the company said Monday.

MOJO has been fielded to the U.S. National Guard, U.S. military services, coalition partners and various combatant commands under the Department of Defense. Viasat aims to augment production run rates to address client demand for the platform.

“Our MOJO system is designed for easy adoption into specialized units like the U.S. Army’s Security Force Assistance Brigades and modernization efforts like the U.S. Army’s Integrated Tactical Network, which gives military users access to mobile, secure, high-speed connectivity for enhanced communications and cloud-enabled applications across the battlespace,” said Ken Peterman, president of government systems at Viasat.
