B-52s get communications upgrade

The U.S. Air Force has begun upgrading the communications and computers of its B-52 fleet. The first B-52 has received its Boeing Combat Network Communications Technology (CONECT) upgrade.
CONECT is currently in low-rate initial production, though the Air Force anticipates modernizing its entire B-52 fleet with the innovative CONECT capability. The CONECT kits are being installed at Tinker Air Force Base, Oklahoma.
