Japan's military is lagging in terms of its digitisation, but a smart base experiment could begin to turn the tide.
USCG reviews C-27J missionisation package
The US Coast Guard (USCG) has completed the system requirements review for the C-27J Spartan medium-range surveillance aircraft missionisation package, it was announced on 24 August.
Missionisation is the process of integrating specialised equipment for supporting the missions of USCG. The US Navy’s Minotaur mission system suite is being used as a base to develop the C-27J missionisation package.
Completion of the system requirements review implies that the USCG and US Naval Air Systems Command agree on the missionisation package requirements, and that initial systems development can begin.
The missionisation package will include 19 subcomponents, and the missionised Leonardo C-27J Spartan military transport aircraft will feature capabilities similar to the HC-130J Super Hercules long-range surveillance aircraft. Equipment on the missionised C-27Js will include Automatic Identification System transceivers, electro-optical/infrared sensors, forward-looking infrared cameras and multimode radar.
