  JTIDS
JTIDS is a secure, frequency-agile, spread-spectrum, military communication system that operates in the 969 -1206 MHz band.
As a result the JTIDS band is "Notched" from 1008 to 1053 and 1065 to 1113 MHz to prevent interference.
JTIDS is installed on all type of aircraft, on ships and on both fixed and mobile based ground systems.

 Reference.com/Encyclopedia/Joint Tactical Information Distribution System
The Joint Tactical Information Distribution System (JTIDS) is an L band TDMA network radio system used by the United States armed forces and their allies to support data communications needs, principally in the air and missile defense community.
The full development of JTIDS commenced in 1981 when a contract was placed with Singer-Kearfott (later GEC-Marconi Electronic Systems, now BAE Systems E&IS).
JTIDS is also used by the UK armed forces and is fitted to the majority of the UKs tornado F3 fleet

 JTIDS: JTIDS: Joint Tactical Information Distribution System
The Joint Tactical Information Distribution System (JTIDS) provides jam-resistant digital communication of data and voice for command and control, navigation, relative positioning, and identification.
As a digital system for both data and voice, JTIDS can handle large amounts of data - far more than the communication systems now used for similar purposes.
When a terminal is not transmitting, it receives messages sent by other terminals that transmit, in turn, in a prearranged order.

Hill and Ulrich, "JTIDS." "Spread spectrum is used to describe a class of modulation techniques in which the data stream is coded in such a way that the total transmission bandwidth is greater than the information bandwidth.
If the spectrum spreading is done properly, the transmitted signal looks [sounds] to the unauthorized listener like wideband noise." As to frequency hopping, "it is a jammer evasion strategy rather than one which tries to resist or overcome the jammer.
JTIDS is considered to be a fast frequency hopping system (thousand hops per second).

 McNair Paper 18 - Chapter 6
This feature led one observer to characterize JTIDS as "a disc drive in the sky."(Note 4) Other features include position location and identification to JTIDS-equipped elements and a secure system that provides participants with digitized voice capability.
From the history and evolution of JTIDS it is apparent that a joint product, system, effort, or process is bound to run into obstacles from its inception.
Were it not for a DOD/OSD fiat in 1975, which followed a bitterly contested battle, the two services might have had their own systems, or stovepipes, but still not have been able to communicate with each other, according to Hill and Ulrich.

JTIDS automatically performs position determination by multilateral ranging as part of its anti-jam computations, but it also can use offboard capabilities such as GPS for finer position accuracy.
At that time, JTIDS was high-priced, so it was clear that the Air Force, which didn't want the A-10 anyway, would not pay for that platform.
Indeed, during the '80s, a run was made at defining and testing a JTIDS Class 3 terminal that would have cost significantly less, with minimal loss of performance.

The results of Red Baron, which were in keeping with the observations of other American aces, led to the concept of maintaining situational awareness (knowing exactly where you are, and where everyone else is).
Probably one of the most valuable tools for American pilots is JTIDS (Joint Tactical Information Data System) a datalink that gives the pilot a good situation report, telling him what other pilots (and planes like the E-3) are seeing.
One might be able to determine the best of an era or a war (in the case of Vietnam, Cunningham bested the best pilot on the other side), but even then, it will be the subject of debate for years as long as there are aviation enthusiasts.

Platforms equipped with JTIDS automatically transmit their own position and identification to all other JTIDS equipped users within line of site as well as any tracks their sensor owns.
Like most capabilities, it is subject to correct (or lack thereof) procurement, implementation and training, and it has unfortunately been carried out on the back of the proverbial fag packet with little investment or interest from "on high" until the back end of 2002....funny old thing.

NCW is the application of new information age technologies to meet the needs and requirements of today’s and future warfighters, and represents the possibility of increasing warfighting capabilities by an order of magnitude.
For example, if every discussion on NCW begins with the contention that a specific hardware solution (like JTIDS) must be acquired before the end user can be NCW-capable, then a thorough analysis can never be achieved that determines what exactly the warfighter needs in terms of performance, affordability and ease of HMI.
To take that approach would be analogous to saying that the use of a 10K pound bomb is a successful means by which to eliminate an enemy sniper.
