The missile data-link comes strictly from the launching aircraft.
That launching aircraft may receive data from other sources (ie. all of this above stuff) and then pass that data onto the missile it is launching via M-Link.
Ah so it has more to do with the launching aircrafts data link capability than the missiles then.
