Some U.S. military commanders believe that data sharing between sensors and weapons should be part of the Defense Department‘s missile defense strategy, Breaking Defense reported Tueday.

“That was one of the things we think we need to really invest in [to] get firing-quality track data…. for all the domains,” Adm. Bill Gortney, head of the North American Aerospace Defense Command and the U.S. Northern Command, was quoted as saying.

Gortney added he believes DoD’s current processes do not enable intelligence or targeting-quality data to reach decision makers in a short period of time, according to Breaking Defense.

Sydney Freedberg Jr. says the U.S. needs a defense platform that can disable or destroy adversarial missiles before they are launched as well as a global network system for military personnel to transmit targeting information from a sensor to shooters.
