Submission + - F-22 Radar Used as High-Capacity Data Link? (theregister.co.uk)

Lord of Hyphens writes: "According to The Register, The USAF is looking at a new use for the F-22 Raptor's sophisticated electronics systems: control of grounded robotics.

[A]n alliance of Northrop Grumman, Lockheed Martin, and L-3 Communications has duplicated the AESA ground tests in the air, using a Raptor radar mounted in a BAC 1-11 test plane to exchange data with a ground station at 274 Mbit/sec, "fully duplex". AESA radars are well able to handle two simultaneous information streams, apparently. All you need is an "off-the-shelf, L-3 programmable modem".
