although the services communicate
using existing resources such as Link
16, a digital communications tool.
The Navy will press forward
with the incorporation of NIFC-CA in all air defense ships within
deploying strike groups.
“There’s a lot of rigor that’s put
into making sure strike groups are
modified together and particularly
that their [command, control,
communications, computers and
intelligence] is compatible when
they go to sea,” Carr said. “It is a
very exciting capability.”
NIFC-CA exemplifies “how the
surface Navy is going to fight the
outer-air battle,” he said. “It is a
quantum leap in capability for us
and gives tremendous flexibility to
the joint force commander. ... This
is a game-changer.”

by harnessing the sensor data of aircraft, thereby furthering their range inland.
