To make the GSOC part of the IEWCS "system of systems," the team gave the command center the IEWC's intervehicular Mission Equipment Control Data Link (MECDL) in addition to the normal Tactical Reporting Data Link (TRDL) connection.
According to LTC Steven Campbell, commander of the 104th MI Battalion, the five ground systems used their robust MECDL and TRDL connections to net themselves across a 35-km baseline (defined as a continuous link from the first to the fifth system).
As an official member of the IEWCS family, the MEWSS will enjoy all the benefits of interoperability (occasioned by a common MECDL data link) on any future battlefield.
