Updated: Aug 3

SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, January 18, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Global Air Logistics and Training, Inc. (GALT) completed another successful government customer Developmental Test (DT) of the Fused Integrated Naval Network (FINN)/ Sky Tower Two Prototype (ST2P) system at MCB Camp Pendleton, California. FINN/ST2P encompasses a MCWL-led effort to provide the Naval Force (US Navy and US Marine Corps) with the ability to share Situational Awareness (SA) between incompatible platforms.


DT-4 was the fourth in a series of planned tests. During the successful ground and flight phases of test, the GALT team demonstrated the airborne FINN Prototype communication gateway capabilities between multiple ground-based communication nodes and the podded system flown on a Group 5 UAS surrogate (SAAB-340). Over the course of two weeks and 30 flight hours, the FINN/ST2P demonstrated networking communications to and from distributed, dissimilar, remote/disadvantaged users and platforms.


The development test is the latest in a series of successful flights, using AFRL approved pods, advancing the development and maturation of the FINN/ST2P capability.
