Cubic Mission Solutions has been selected by Lockheed Martin as the Video Data Link (VDL) provider for the F-35 Lighting II program, the company announced on 11 June in a press release.

The VDL capability is a secure and mission-enhancing system that enables the aircraft to receive and transmit metadata and sensor to and from multiple ground or airborne units. The radio-based VDL solution is software-defined and it features high-performance processing that can support future live video enhancements, while minimizing size, weight, power and cooling (SWAP-C), according to the company.

The solution is built to fit within the allocated Communications, Navigation and Identification (CNI) subsystem volume.
