U.S. Army Wants To Field Integrated C-RAM Systems 
Combining assets to defeat the rocket, artillery and mortar (RAM) threat has proven successful, but other traditional threats (aircraft/cruise missile) and emerging asymmetric ones (unmanned air systems) still have been treated separately. The RAM experience suggested an integrated approach to defeating these threats and to the acquisition process. This approach unites sensor, weapons and mission-command components with a standard set of interfaces using a standardized set of networks to communicate—a meta-system for air defense.
Black Dart Exercise Aims To Counter UAV Threats 

NAVAL BASE VENTURA COUNTY, California — For the first time, media have been allowed to observe “Black Dart,” the military’s large-scale, live counter-unmanned aerial system (CUAS)/air defense exercise.

Black Dart, which takes place within and around Naval Base Ventura County, California, (formerly NAS Point Mugu, merged with the adjacent Port Hueneme Naval Base and San Nicholas Island), began in 2004 as a classified exercise.

U.S. Navy Completes Next Round Of JPALS Testing 

The U.S. Navy has capped off the initial engineering and manufacturing development test phase for the Raytheon-designed Joint Precision and Approach Landing System (JPALS) with another set of at-sea trials in which two F/A-18C Hornets from naval test squadron VX-23 executed more than 70 JPALS approaches and automated landings aboard the USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71) over a two-week period.
