'Take Charge and Move Out': VX-20 Launches E-6B TACAMO Into 21st Century Air Order of Battle

About this Podcast...

Featured in this interview is US Navy Commander Adam Scott, who is a platform coordinator at VX-20 Air Test and Evaluation Squadron in Pax River, Maryland. Included in his remit are the E-6 Mercury, T-6 Texan and the T-34 Mentor, and this discussion zeroes in on E-6B TACAMO development, and particularly the US Navy's Block I Upgrade programme. There are some very difficult issues at play here; especially when it comes to dealing with upgrading the platform's highly classified capabilities, as well as addressing the greater focus on broadly deployed software components.
