The F-35 works, Engines, Networking and eMagin Enabled Helmet..F-35 Ascending: The Pentagon's Biggest Program Had Its Best Year Ever In 2017
If you haven't followed this saga closely, I can explain in simple terms why F-35 is a game-changer. First, the "low observable" (stealth) features built into the airframe from its inception make it nearly invisible to enemy radar. Second, its ability to fuse inputs from on-board and off-board sensors gives pilots comprehensive situational awareness. Third, its secure networking technology allows all the pilots in a strike group to share the same operational picture. Fourth, its Pratt & Whitney engine delivers unprecedented performance.
