On April 18, the U.S. Naval Air Systems Command posted a request for information for an upgrade to the Intelligence Broadcast Service Common Message Format software.
The Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division Lakehurst, NJ is soliciting information and comments from industry on its ability to provide an upgrade to the Maritime Patrol Reconnaissance Software Suite (MPRS) software product for the Intelligence Broadcast Service Common Message Format (CMF) processing of the Ultra Electronics Advanced Tactical Airborne System (ATAS), P/N 900-100749-002 REV A, NIIN 5999-01-585-3161, for P-3C Tactical Data Processor currently installed in P-3C aircraft.
The ATAS provides the P-3C Anti-Surface Warfare Improvement Program fleet with a tactical and operational picture where the operators can receive, store, correlate and transmit theatre specific real-time sensor and target information. This effort is to formalize the MPRS CMF patch into a new deliverable baseline, remediate Software Trouble Reports, update test criteria/documentation and formally test the CMF interface with the aircraft’s Link-16 capability.
