The Revolution in Combat Aircraft Software
10:00am EDT | 15:00 BST | 16:00 CEST
The biggest new U.S. Air Force innovation of this decade may not be a new stealth fighter but rather the ability to upgrade platforms on the fly with new software, the way an iPhone uploads a new app. The military has been working for years to shift its periodic waterfall upgrades to this more commercial approach and the Air Force is getting close to making it a reality.
Aviation Week Defense Editor Steve Trimble and Executive Editor, Technology Graham Warwick discuss how the service is moving toward its goal, what that will mean for the platforms, how the software will be used and how the changes are likely to impact the industrial base.
