Extend your networking capabilities and send data over tactical satcom radios

Viasat Data Controllers (VDCs) work with all combat net radios to deliver powerful, easy-to-use networking - even on channels too noisy for voice. Lab and field tests have repeatedly verified that VDCs are the highest-performance system for sending data over all tactical radios. With Viasat VDCs, you can:

  • Send simple notes and files twice as fast as competing products, using less radio power during transmission for longer battery life
  • Extend networking beyond notes and files to stream video, share imagery on demand, and collaborate via whiteboard
  • Utilize apps like FalconView and C2PC for situational awareness mapping
  • Experience global interoperability since VDCs work with all major brands of tactical U.S. and coalition radios 


Field-proven with global reliability
