Cubic‘s mission solutions business has received a delivery order to develop a prototype of small form factor radio technology for the U.S. Air Force.

The company said Monday it aims to demonstrate a compact system equipped with an internal waveform called Boomslang and designed to operate with USAF’s Data Link Enterprise that supports ground-to-air and air-to-ground communications.

The DLE network is built to facilitate command-and-control data processing within the service branch.
