The historic approach to delivering RF mission systems for Command, Control, Communications,Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) and Electronic Warfare (EW) saw the development of monolithic ‘stove-piped’ equipment. These systems responded to immediate RF mission needs, but without prioritizing the integration between standalone systems.This has left a patchwork of hard-earned system interoperability, rather than creating a planned and optimized homogeneous base to build future capabilities upon.This evolved collection of disintegrated solutions sees a high degree of functional duplication with little usable redundancy. Dedicated compute nodes, power systems, and location services drive up the Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) envelope, leaving less space for personnel while making platform Electro-Magnetic Compatibility (EMC) control problematic.
