GA- ASI plans fur­ther RWR demon­stra­tions later in the year to in­clude in­te­grat­ing with Link 16 ( a mil­i­tary tac­ti­cal data ex­change net­work). De­vel­op­ment and test­ing is cur­rently be­ing con­ducted un­der In­ter­nal Re­search and De­vel­op­ment ( IRAD) fund­ing, with the goal of part­ner­ing with po­ten­tial cus­tomers in the near fu­ture.
