For example, with the mandated proliferation of Link-16 over the next 5 years, every SPO must work together to ensure overallinteroperability, not only among Link-16 participants but also among numerous other diverse systems and datalinks which are not Link-16 compatible. This non-interoperability between diverse systems may be resolved by implementation of data forwardingrules, translation architecture(s), or other unique translation applications that act as a
