Army Intelligence System 

PROBLEM

The US Army’s primary airborne Communication Intelligence (COMINT) platform is a fleet of RC-12N aircraft whose mission is to fly over the theater of operation and gather voice and digital communication intelligence. This classified platform was suffering from aging compute systems, outdated network interconnects, and a software architecture that made major feature and capability enhancements difficult, lengthy, and expensive.

  • The Army’s planned successor COMINT platform was delayed by 10 years due to design and funding issues.

  • The current platform needed to be modernized, and its surveillance capabilities upgraded to support the COMINT mission for an additional 10-15 years.
