Small form Weapon Datalink.

Rockwell Collins and Boeing successfully flight tested a miniaturised Weapon Data Link that was integrated with the US Department of Defense's new Weapon Data Link Network Interface Control Document. The demonstration consisted of a King Air test aircraft relaying in-flight target update information via Link-16 from a Rockwell Collins 50-[inch.sup.3] multi-mode weapon datalink terminal. The tests were designed to illustrate the integration of standard datalink messages to communicate through existing Link-16 nets with a weapon carried by an aircraft and pass this information along to appropriate agencies. The small form-factor enables the datalink to be sized to fit into weapon applications.
