USAF Tests Talon HATE Airborne System For Fighter-Satellite Communication Network

The US Air Force has tested Talon HATE airborne networking system that is used for communication between fighter aircraft and ground stations.

Boeing and the US Air Force demonstrated in the US state of Nevada that multiple fighter aircraft and ground stations can securely communicate using Talon HATE airborne networking system through military satellites, the company announced Monday.

During flight testing at Nellis Air Force Base (AFB) in the US state of Nevada, Talon HATE pods on two F-15C aircraft enabled test pilots to share information through the military’s Link 16, Common Data Link and Wideband Global SATCOM satellites.

The tests also validated intra-flight datalink network capabilities used by F-22 aircraft and Boeing will conduct additional tests later this year with advanced sensors, which will offer improved aircraft targeting capabilities, the release noted.
