AbstractLink 16 is the latest CNI system for tactical Combat participants. Due to the extent of the system introduction, the Navy has planned a phased introduction. So far the system has addressed Anti-Air Warfare with the participating units of the CV, CG, DDG and F-14. The latest participating unit is the F/A-18 where missions expand beyond AAW to the Air Support Operations for littoral areas of combat; SEAD, CAS, RECCE, STRIKE, etc. This task shall define the C3NI requirements for expanded ASO and specifically address how JTIDS/MIDS will support cooperative engagements in each mission segment. The task will address the cyclical ASO missions which are typical of theater combat in contrast to AAW defensive tactics which maintain a single objective. The analysis nad developed concepts will be prepared and presented in a manner that will aid in the development of a time-line model. This model will allow manipulation of JTIDS/MIDS (Link 16) protocols to enhance the system's performance in supporting cyclical ASO missions.
