What is MOJO?

Viasat’s Move Out/Jump Off terminal allows operational commanders at the tactical edge to receive the best possible levels of situational awareness required to do their job.

Providing warfighters with simultaneous access to disparate and incompatible communications networks — including Link 16 — is Viasat’s Move Out/Jump Off (MOJO) gateway.

Capable of being operated on-the-move to ensure Line-of-Sight (LoS) and Beyond-LoS communications across air, land and maritime environments, MOJO’s reduced form factor allows it to be integrated onboard a variety of platforms — including ground vehicles and small maritime vessels

Featuring Viasat’s KOR-24A Small Tactical Terminal (STT), MOJO provides the warfighter with at least three-channel, simultaneous communications including Link 16, TADIL-J, VHF/UHF (SINCGARS, SRW, ANW2C, SATCOM, IW and DAMA) and another embedded radio such as EPLRS/SADL networking.

MOJO also features an integrated computer capable of hosting and controlling gateway applications, which allow warfighters to select their own mission-specific applications and external displays that best suit their information and situational awareness needs.

MOJO allows operational commanders at the tactical edge to receive the best possible levels of situational awareness required to do their job. Designed to provide access to a Common Operating Picture (COP) across disparate networks and in remote and austere locations, MOJO shortens targeting cycles and reduces collateral damage during fire missions while providing greater situational awareness to the commander.

MOJO also enhances interoperability between U.S. and coalition partners, providing access to the COP through Link 16 or SADL-enabled platforms among others.

MOJO can be set up by a single end user within minutes, making it a rapidly deployable communications solution capable of being operated anywhere in the world for large-scale combat operations.

MOJO is also scheduled to be networked to Viasat’s planned XVI Link 16 Low Earth Orbit satellite (LEO), due to begin evaluation with the DoD in late 2021, which is expected to extend its ability to communicate with BLoS assets in the immediate battlespace
