Beechcraft/Raytheon (Wichita, KS) supplies the RC-1 2 aircraft; Lockheed Martin Systems Integration (Oswego, NY) the CHAALS
; SEI the Advanced Quick Look; and L3 Communications (San Diego, CA) the datalinks.
This means that until now, there was an ability for forward but not backward compatibility: Beechcraft/Raytheon supplied the RC-12 aircraft; Lockheed Martin the CHAALS
; SEI the Advanced Quick Look; and L3 Communications the datalinks.
To complement the TAC-JAM-A units, the Army has launched the Communication High Accuracy Airborne Location System (CHAALS
) program, which is designed to develop a common location system.
