Boeing and Air Force demonstrate new airborne networking system for fighter jets

Looks like they've been doing some testing on the TALON HATE pod out at Nellis. And finally go this thing working.

TALON HATE links newer stealth fighters with older aircraft and ground stations via sat communication securely.

This should really change the way things are done.





The Boeing Co. and the U.S. Air Force say they’ve shown that a new type of communication pod for F-15 fighter jets, known as Talon HATE, can link together different types of aircraft and ground stations for secure communications.

The Boeing-developed system is designed to knit together the communication systems aboard F-15 jets and other traditional weapons systems, plus the F-22 stealth fighters built for the Air Force by Lockheed Martin. The F-22 uses a special type of networking system that’s optimized for stealthiness but poses a challenge for communication with non-stealth airplanes, as explained in this report from Foxtrot Alpha.

In addition in the article is a bonus. F-15C stealth eagle. Slick video.

Not to long ago they said the f-15 was to be retired. Aren't the airframe way past life expectancy.

Sounds like a good solution to bridge the communication systems that also creates new benefits for the newer aircraft. Hopefully it's working per design.

A lot of the older ones are with bad fatigue cracking in major airframe structures.Dont know how much Stealthy you can get older generation aircraft unless you look at its avionics.

They'll be flying through 2022. They're getting the first SLEP, which is approximately $1M per aircraft to replace the longerons. They'll make a further decision once they have the results of the fatigue testing, and engineering evaluation on the wing replacement.

Pair them up with F-35s and watch the haters disappear as the F-35 drastically increases legacy aircraft performance as well.

The new eagle is a missile slinger. There is no possible way it could be stealth. I think it was born out of simulated war games where the Chinese overwhelmed our forces with sheer numbers. So even though they took many losses they still would win battles because our stealth arm we are relying on is small.

The new eagle would supplement that and work with the f-22's and f-35's to make more kills on the enemy air forces so they couldn't wear down our stealth forces.

The 2040C isn't going to happen. For that to happen they will have to replace the wing and put a new center wing section. Right now that's estimated at far too expensive per aircraft to do. They may get portions of it, but they won't get all of it.
