The JRE Team is thrilled with the recent success onboard the Australian C-130J where the JRE solution was selected by The Commonwealth of Australia and Airbus to be the Host system / Tactical Data Link system for the Commonwealth’s major air platform. The JRE systems were installed on the certified CMC TacView™ flight computers and laptops then integrated into the cockpit, loadmaster, and flight deck stations. The JRE is providing a quality Situational Awareness picture to the C-130J via the established JRE Managed Data Link networks on the ground.

Minor interface development was required to connect to the NAV Bus and pull information from the aircraft into the JRE systems. Thanks to the diligence and hard work of all parties involved this JRE development effort was completed on schedule and tested successfully without issue.

We are proud of the successful ground test and training events. The solution Airbus and The Commonwealth will field marks another great addition of capability to the Royal Australian Air Force’s inventory.
