Developing Technologies in the US Navy Super Hornet


The latest technology advancements of the US Navy Super Hornet can be directlyrnattributed to the outstanding work done by the St Louis IDS New Product Development Teamrn(NPD) and Electronic Prototyping and Integration Center (EPIC) of Phantom Works. The role ofrnthe NPD and EPIC teams is to work with our NAVAIR customer to progress the spiralrndevelopment of the F/A-18. This spiral development incorporates the latest Network CentricrnOperations (NCO), data-link and message definitions including: mass storage and high speedrnprocessors, sensors image exploitation, and cursor on target. These technologies in turn providernnew capabilities to the aircraft, such as: common tactical picture; time sensitive targeting andrnattack; Blue Force tracks/fratricide avoidance; precision weapon deliveries; Bomb HitrnAssessment, and digital Command and Control. All of these are areas are critical to our ever- everevolvingrnlist of customer requirements.rnEvolving The NPD Team uses an integration box called Gateway for Airborne Tactical datarnExchange (GATE), and is the means within the demonstrator F/A-18E/F aircraft that enables thernrapid prototyping and deployment of capability. The Phantom Works EPIC Team designed,rnbuilt, developed the software and integrated the box into the demonstrator aircraft. DuringrnCY04, the NPD Team completed several projects, which included: Image Correlation Targetingrn(ICT), Maintenance Datalink Download (MADD), NCO Spiral 2 Demo, and participated in twornmajor DOD experiments. The two experiments were the USAF Joint Expeditionary ForcernExperiment (JEFX) at Nellis AFB and US Army Communications-Electronics Research,rnDevelopment and Engineering Center (CERDEC) C4ISR “On the Move” Experiment CERDECrnat Ft Dix Range.rnDuring JEFX, the NPD team demonstrated the Hornet’s capability to transmit and receivernimagery via the NCO Link-16 and Variable Message Format (VMF). This was possible due tornthe GATE box. The Raytheon Advanced Targeting Forward Looking Infrared (ATFLIR) podrnwas used to capture the imagery, and via GATE processing, the imagery was transmitted andrnexchanged digital imagery with ground Link-16/VMF terminals. The ATFLIR imagery wasrndistributed to the USAF Combined Air Operations Center (CAOC). This demonstration wasrnincredibly profound and will effect future prosecution of targets within the NCO world. This isrnan example of how this technology supports the Super Hornet Roadmap and Spiral technologyrnupdate to the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet IOC in CY2005.rnFuture demonstrations to support the Super Hornet technology roadmap includes:rnMultiple Moving Target Track; Moving target attack via weapon data-links; WidebandrnNetworking Waveform (WNW) and Tactical Targeting Network Technology (TTNT) IP-basedrncommunications. As the information technology field expands, our customer the US Navy, willrnbe at the forefront helping to lead the way in large part due to the advancements provided by thisrnteam.......
