Raytheon demonstrates multi-domain comms tech in air force trial
During the testing, RIPL supported seamless and secure access to content for users in the network, allowing users toe received only information they requested and were authorised to see.
Using AI/ML alongside new disruption tolerance protocols, RIPL was able to overcome the limited and intermittent connectivity expected in contested environments.
Brian Holmes, programme manager, AFRL Advanced Planning and Autonomous C2 Systems Branch, said the demonstration, which included three of four mission divisions with AFRL and two geographically separate locations was 'executed flawlessly'.
RIPL was demonstrated using multiple waveforms and hardware platforms, as well as various data formats with real and emulated components.
RIPL enables the Air Force Combat Cloud, which in turn will be a key enabler of the Advanced Battle Management System and the DoD’s Joint All Domain Command and Control (JADC2) effort.
