Lockheed demonstrates two-way video data link
Lockheed Martin demonstrated a prototype, wireless two-way video data link (VDL) for the Sniper Advanced Targeting Pod. The demonstration occurred during a U.S. Air Force Sniper users’ conference at its Missiles and Fire Control facility in Orlando, Fla. The two-way VDL lets forward deployed forces receive Sniper’s high-resolution streaming video and upload annotated images directly back to the Sniper pod. In addition, pilots can review uplinked tactical video on their cockpit displays, according to the company.
