BAE Systems has been awarded a contract to provide a Link 16 network management system to the Finnish Air Force (Ilmavoimat). Supporting the operation of Finland’s Boeing F-18C Hornet combat aircraft, the system will enable ground command and control operators to connect to, and maintain contact with, their fast jets across the entire country.

BAE Systems will work in partnership with Rockwell Collins, the prime contractor and team leader for the ground station programme.

Under the contract, BAE Systems will provide all the software to set up the infrastructure, configure and control the various remote sites and configure and manage the Link 16 network. BAE Systems will also provide a simulation environment which that will provide the Finnish Air Force with the ability to participate in high fidelity collaborative training exercises whilst still supporting live operations.
