big-dataThe U.S. Air Force has published a request for information on data links that the military branch can integrate with airborne intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance platforms.

Interested parties have until Aug. 31 to submit input to the service branch.

The Air Force aims to incorporate the data link into an ISR system that comprises an air and a ground segment equipped with standard commercial interfaces built to facilitate line-of-sight connectivity between aircraft, tactical receivers and a ground operator console.
