More about lost links - jamming is usually associated with first generation analog datalinks, which can be blocked by broadband jammers such as common IED countermeasures. However, digital datalinks employ more robust coms, that are designed to survive jamming and other types of interference. Defense Update has just filed a story on one of these stsrems, called Lightlink, developed by RAFAEL in Israel and is already deployed with several unmanned systems.
