    Add this E-3 replacement to the Compass Call and JSTARS recapitalization aircraft and it seems like USAF airborne C4ISR is getting a major reboot.......

    I think in the future AWACS will have many more things to track in the air given the proliferation of UAV's of all shapes and sizes. UAV's may not be the only driver but stealth aircraft too. They also need to track a lot high speed cruise missiles.
