Boeing demos Talon HATE system

10th May 2017 - 14:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Boeing and the US Air Force have demonstrated the ability of the Talon HATE airborne networking system to provide efficient and secure communication and information sharing amongst multiple aircraft and ground stations, the company announced on 8 May.

The demonstrations were carried out at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada. During testing, Talon HATE pods on two F-15C aircraft enabled aircrew to share information through military Link 16, Common Data Link and Wideband Global Satellite communication satellite networks.

Talon HATE enables information transmission in real time between F-15C aircrew, other air force aircraft and weapon systems.

The tests also validated intra-flight datalink network capabilities used by F-22 aircraft.

Paul Geery, vice president, Phantom Works Mission Solutions and Boeing's Talon HATE program manager, said: 'This aerial network is a giant leap forward in tactical fighter capability with real-time connectivity and expanded information sharing. We are now demonstrating secure datalink connections between F-15Cs and F-22s in a way that integrates information for the pilot into a common operating picture.'

Boeing is set to conduct additional tests with advanced sensors throughout 2017, with the aim of offering improved aircraft targeting capabilities.
