The American company Northrop Grumman has been developing a network gateway, which will allow fifth-generation fighters to fully communicate. As writes Flightglobal, the system is called gatewayOne.
Currently, the U.S. air force are two kinds of fifth generation fighter: F-22 Raptor and F-35 Lightning II. Between themselves, they can transfer only a limited amount of data, which is not enough for full intelligence-sharing or targeting.
A promising system gatewayOne will allow the F-22 and F-35 not only lead a full exchange data with each other, but also with other aircraft, as well as obtain information from satellites.
Development gateway is part of a broader program of ABMS, involving the creation of a unified automated command and control systems. The latter will bring together planes, helicopters, satellite systems, ground and marine equipment.
In 2016, the U.S. Department of defense introduced the concept of multi-domain military action. It involves coherent and precise part in the hostilities at the same time different kinds and types of troops from the Navy and air force to cyberarmies.
The us military believes that in the event of war to defeat a high-tech enemy can only, if at the same time conduct combat operations on land, at sea, in the air, in space and in cyberspace.
