Mission success, aircraft survivability, and personnel safety depend on critical defense systems such as radar warning receivers (RWRs) that deliver threat notifications to pilots and other system operators. In addition, Command, Control, Communication, Computers, Cyber, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C5ISR) systems must reliably provide global situational awareness using less aperture and space.

The components of these critical systems are dispersed all over the aircraft for tactical or practical reasons. Many microwave/RF assemblies, power wires, and high-speed data cables are routed throughout the airframe to connect these components.
