A tactical data link is a system used by the defense forces. This system uses a standard data link to provide communication between armed forces within airborne, land, and seaborne platforms via radio waves or data cables. The tactical data link includes Intelligence, Surveillance, & Reconnaissance (ISR), radio communication, command and control, and electronic warfare. The tactical data link market is projected to grow from USD 4.76 Billion in 2017 to USD 6.43 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 6.17% from 2017 to 2022. The tactical data link market in North America is fueled by the rising terrorist activities as well as the various military equipment modernization programs which have driven major defense equipment manufacturers of the region to develop more advanced tactical data link such as Link 16 and Link 22.
