In a new sources sought notice, the Air Force describes the need to upgrade the current Ground Moving Target Indicator system as well as to add new mission functions. The Air Force also wants better interoperability with the Advanced Battle Management System.

Upgrades will support sharing legacy and advanced sensor data, targeting data among air and ground shooters, and data feeds from the Ground Moving Target Indicator systems.

The RFI makes the Ground Moving Target Indicator system sound almost like a traffic cop that ensures sensors and other data is shared among several targeting systems. That system also will need to interact with the Global Hawk Block 40, the Air Force’s large unmanned aircraft platform.

The system also needs a variety of surface tracking elements and historic replay capabilities. The Air Force also wants data fusion capabilities.

Comments on the RFI are due May 22.
