The Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) wants mid-altitude aerial layer communication technologies.

The solicitation for white papers states that current aerial layer networks are "limiting our combat effectiveness, especially in contested, degraded, operationally limited, and anti-access area denial environments where studies have shown that we may be unable to maintain communication availability."

AFRL wants more open and flexible networks. Among the technologies to be examined in the three-year, $9.9 million project are secure, dynamic and adaptable aerial mesh networks; network resource management; open architecture; IP communication networking; high-capacity backbones; network-enabled weapons information links; and command and control of directional networking.
