Afghan command and control needs
The Air Force wants information on new concepts for beyond line-of-sight, command and control capabilities for sustained air operations in Afghanistan. Companies wishing to provide this capability as a service provider also should respond.
The military wants technologies in place by January 2004, with a longer-term solution if needed. The solution should provide communications between bombers, fighters, command and control platforms and unmanned aerial vehicles and command and control functions in Afghanistan or 2,000 miles away at the Al Udeid Combined Air Operations Center. System components should operate unattended and remotely controlled.
