Abstract:

Aircraft equipped for the AWACS role acquire and store large amounts of tactical situation data drawn from several sources. This information may be useful for any of a variety of ground-based C2 functions and missions. Suitably protected digital downlinks e.g., TADIL might be employed to transmit the data available in the AWACS aircraft to appropriately equipped ground-based C2 centers. Owing to the fixed data-rates characteristic of available down-link systems, not all in aircraft data that might otherwise prove useful for some of those ground-based C2 missions can be transmitted in a timely way.
