Linking Air Assets to Overwhelm Combatants' Ground Defenses

This concept video explains DARPA's planned approach to linking air assets to overwhelm adversaries' ground defenses. The System of Systems (SoS) Integration Technology and Experimentation (SoSITE) program aims to develop and demonstrate concepts for maintaining air superiority through novel SoS architectures - combinations of aircraft, weapons, sensors, and mission systems - that distribute air warfare capabilities across a large number of interoperable manned and unmanned platforms. The vision is to integrate new technologies and airborne systems with existing systems more quickly and at lower cost than near-peer adversaries can counter them.
