The US Air Force recently designated the Multisensor Command and Control
Aircraft MC2A as the E-10A. The "E" designation stands for Electrical Systems,
like in the cases of E-3 and E-8 aircraft.
E-10A multisensor command and control aircraft will provide ground and some
airborne moving target indication, as well as key battle command and control
management. It is expected to be a key element in the Air Force's C2
The C2 constellation is a concept that envisions a fully connected array of
land, airborne and space-based sensors that use common standards and
communication protocols to relay information automatically in machine-to-machine
The MC2A , now E-10A, was first envisioned as a future replacement of E-3 and
E-8 aircraft. The Boeing's 767-400 airframe was selected for the MC2A program.
The 767-400 election was due of superior performance over other models.
The Air Force plans to field the first E-10A as a test bed in 2008, followed by
4 operational E-10A aircraft in 2012 joining the E-8C J-STARS fleet. The
E-10A will ensure America's supremacy on the 21st century battlefield.
