AN/TSC-110 Adaptable Surface Interface Terminal (ASIT)

The AN/TSC-110 Adaptable Surface Interface Terminal (ASIT) van operates as a segment of the Joint Tactical Information Distribution System (JTIDS) network. The JTIDS is an advanced radio system that provides a secure, radio frequency (RF), digital data bus for tactical communications. The ASIT van interfaces with the E-3 Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) and receives the air picture via a Tactical Digital Information Link, type J (TADIL-J) and converts the data into a TADIL-B format which is used to pass the air picture to the TAOM thereby increasing the overall air picture.
