This paper reports on the current status of the PMA-209, Air Combat Electronics (CNS/ATM) team activities. The team has completed the development of the Functional Requirements Documents that convert civil documents prepared by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and other Civil Aviation Authorities plans to implement air traffic architecture to meet this need. Our team is taking advantage of emerging technologies in communications, navigation, and surveillance to improve air traffic management. The CNS/ATM requirements for voice, data link, navigation, and surveillance are being met by integration into legacy and new USN/USMC platforms. This paper discuss the issues and program status of the current CNS/ATM efforts for the P-3C, EA-6B, F/A-18 E/F and other platforms; CNS/ATM as it applies to network centric warfare utilizing a digital cockpit for precision strike, common operational picture, improved situational awareness and operational effectiveness. Multiple data links that are required for joint and coalition operations such as Link 16, Mode 5 and CLIP discussed.
