When I worked on avionics about 30 years ago they could do that so that's not too new.

I also worked on Mission Planning systems where they could download data after a flight from an aircraft and deceminate the info to the rest of the fleet within an hour.

Some amazing stuff.

@Battler Britain: I think the real improvement is how fast they can share the data now. You can do that 3d modeling of engagement envelopes in real time now, and send that to everyone else in the strike package.
