Abstract:

A variety of advanced technology projects have demonstrated the key components required to provide rapid targeting for a real-time response. Forward Hunter led by NAWCWPNS and Goldpan led by the Air Forces Aeronautical Systems Center are examples of Real-Time Information into the CockpitOffboard Targeting RTICOT demonstrations. These programs have shown the value of providing real-time mission updates based on national offboard signals and imagery intelligence to shooters pursuing time-critical targets. All these programs employed national exploitation systems and source material products to show that RTICOT can increase mission effectiveness, enhance survivability, and increase operational flexibility against time-critical fixed and mobile targets. Each demonstration has focused on different aspects of critical offboard targeting technologies, such as multisource nationaltheater intelligence fusion, rapid targeting, near-real-time mission replanning, data dissemination, and onboard processing.
