AFATDS 6.8.1.1 gives the commander the ability to incorporate several JADOCS target managers (e.g. Joint Time Sensitive Target manager, Fires manager, Inter-AOC Manager). It will also give the commander the capability of conducting a Fire Support Planning Course of Action (COA) Analysis with his assigned shooters. The FS COA displays tube strength, munitions required for mission success and system, by type, will allow a by-type, by target of when each tube will be engaging each target displayed on the scheduling worksheet. This has improved connection capabilities, namely the Link16 protocol. It allows AFATDS to connect to any devise/platform/ sensor that uses the JREAP messaging service. These items include the airspace defense system integrator (ADSI), JWACS, JSTAR, Sentinel Radar system as well as organic FF radar systems (Q-53 and Q-50). The units as well as FF radars can be managed for movement from the AFATDS for movement and range fan manipulation. Connections to Core Systems (TBMCS), ADSI, Air and Missile Defense Workstations (AMDWS), Airspace information service (ASIS) are now capable. -Redleg Update, September/October 2016, Advanced Field Artillery Tactical Data System gets dramatic upgrade 5
