No expert but it's probably some "connected battlefield" stuff, sharing telemetry, radar contacts, troop/vehicle movements etc. to and from other theatre assets. Plus helo's aren't exactly stealthy; audible and thermal emissions are really hard to mask, detection based on RF emmissions seems low on the list of detactability concerns.
