Wireless integration to make it less expensive !

Picture from

When one doesn't want to rewire its aircraft and modify its softwares when he integrates a new weapon, Raython can now propose its WiPAK®, a system first demonstrated on Rafale. This information comes from :

"With WiPAK, warfighters can easily and quickly provide targeting information, employ Paveway and gain all the benefits of a GPS/INS guided smart weapon for a fraction of what it would cost to integrate weapons through traditional means," said Harry Schulte, vice president of Raytheon Missile Systems' Air Warfare Systems. "WiPAK uses wireless connectivity technology similar to what is being used in laptop and tablet computers."

In this particular case, the weapon integrated was the GBU-49.
