I was reviewing an article by Bill Sweetman on P-AEA and decided to do some searching online for more information on this interesting airframe.
...and found the following link:
The above "Page 4", is in the slide deck posted here:
USAF: Anti-Access/Area Denial (A2/AD)
There appears to be a composite of information on existing black programs, apparently generated by the USAF. It mentions:
a) Long Range Strike Platform (LRSP) presumably the LRS-B
b) Penetrating Stand-in Airborne Electronic Attack (P-AEA)
c) Penetrating Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (P-ISR)
d) Enduring Command, Control and Communication (C3)
With a little elbow grease and persistence, things just keep getting better. Using a bit of conjecture, I believe the four platforms mentioned had a
start in the SAP/SAR/SCI world, as it's unclear as to what in the current big Air Force asset would serve these roles.
Which may be Amarillo?
What about Wichita?
Time may or may not tell. Enjoy the link while it's still up. ; )
