Officials of the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center at Robins Air Force Base, Ga., ask Sierra Nevada Corp. in Sparks, Nev., for a low-rate initial production (LRIP) on Airborne Mission Networking (AbMN) for Special Forces planes. U.S. Air Force officials said that the order is good for two years at $29.8 million in an announcement. The AbMN allows aircrew and mission personnel aboard to send and receive mission-critical data from tactical and operational nodes in the battlespace. AbMN can also secure line of sight and beyond line of sight, threat identification, mission tracking, and so much more.
