- ‘The T - 33 is equipped with an avionics pallet representative of the X - 45A. The first test included the first use of Link 16 secure datalink.’
- ‘In addition to IFF modes 2, 3, 4, 5, and C (which provides altitude readouts), the pilot can assess LOF using cooperative identification systems like Link 16, interflight datalinks, and JBFSA.’
- ‘The dispatcher can arrange conference calls via radio or by satellite datalink if we're over the ocean, patching us through to a doctor, maintenance facility or security specialist.’
- ‘Still capable of providing all the Mode A / C functions you're used to, this transponder also provides a datalink connection to your KMD that plays a continuous feed of traffic images directly from the FAA's in-house radar network.’
