A Link 16 Network is an accumulation of TDSs participating in a predefined exchange of tactical data via radio frequency (RF) signals operating within line-of- sight (LOS) of other participants in the network.
Link 16 information is primarily coded in J.-series messages which are binary data words with well-defined meanings. These data words are grouped in functional areas, and allocated to network participation groups (NPG) (virtual networks), most importantly: PPLI, or Precise Participant Location and Identification (network participation groups 5 and 6), Surveillance (network participation group 7),Command (Mission Management/Weapons Coordination) (network participation group 8), (Aircraft) Control (network participation group 9), Electronic Warfare & Coordination (network participation group 10).
Link 16 Network Enabled Weapons utilizes NPG 11 J-messages:
- J11.0 Weapon Response/ Status provides weapon compliance responses to controller directives.
- J11.1 Weapon Directives provides controller directives to a weapon.
- J11.2 Weapon Coordination is used to coordinate the transfer of control authority and the delegation of third party source.
