The Department of Defense is working to use technologies such as the F-35 fighter jet’s sensors to support multi-platform transmission of data to improve air dominance in combat, USNI News reported Wednesday. Maj. Gen. David Krumm, director of global power programs under the office of the assistant secretary of the Air Force for acquisition, technology and logistics, said at a Mitchell Institute event said the Pentagon aims to establish a “network-connected family of systems” that operate together to gather relevant information for aerial warfare.

Maj. Gen. Michael Fantini, the director of Air Force warfighting integration capability, added that the DoD aims to establish integrated data collation functions between legacy systems and newer platforms. Previously, Lockheed Martin and the U.S. Navy conducted data integration testing between an F-35B and an Aegis Combat System equipped with a Raytheon-built Standard Misssile 6.
