THE WORLD'S FASTEST ROUTER

Fastest as measured in MPH that is.

The U.S. Air Force recently completed testing on a new “flying wireless router” system that will help give ground forces and pilots real-time tactical information in the field. The main difference between this router and a typical one is that it is attached to fighter planes. It is essentially a software upgrade called Net-T, for network tactical, and is designed to facilitate almost instantaneous communication between commanders, ground troops, and fighter aircraft. This new development provides real-time information like videos, images, maps, coordinates, or any file type from the forward deployed elements without relying on satellite, radio or other forms of traditional communication. It is setting the stage to provide beyond line-of-site command and control capability to warfighters in the air, sea, and on the ground.
