 F35 no longer invisible? US media: in 2019, these military news most attractive


According to the website of defense news weekly on December 31, 2019, the end of high-power radar, floppy disk, defensive hypersonic weapon These themes are the most attractive in 2019, and together they cover many military fields such as electromagnetic spectrum, information technology modernization, emerging technology and space competition. In 2019, defense news rarely heard a Pentagon leader address that didnt mention at least one of the topics.

As the calendar year enters 2020 and the fiscal year enters a new quarter, the website of defense news quickly reviews the reports that readers spend the most time reading:

1. No longer invisible? A German radar maker said it tracked the F-35 in 2018 - from a pony farm

2. The communication system in the era of Dr. Strangelove of nuclear power in the United States finally got rid of floppy disk

Colonel Jason Rossi, commander of the 595th strategic communications squadron of the U.S. air force, said the sac finally abandoned floppy disks in June 2019 and turned to a highly secure solid-state digital storage solution..

We can think of SAC as the U.S. nuclear power version of AOLs IM system, which is one of the many old replication systems used by the U.S. strategic command to send emergency operations information from the nuclear command center to troops on the battlefield.

I joke with people that this is the oldest IT system in the air force, Rossi said in an interview in October. But it is its old age that provides security. You cant hack into something without an IP address. Its a very unique system - its very old, but its very good.

3. Near the east coast, a missile test by the U.S. Navy may be of great significance

According to the report, the US Navy destroyer Thomas S. hadner participated in a live missile exercise using the Aegis virtual twin system. The U.S. Navy is developing the system to significantly reduce the amount of hardware space needed to operate the Aegis combat system.

When the U.S. Navy builds the Arley Burke class destroyer, the installation of the Aegis combat system into the ship requires a set of hardware specially designed for the operation of the aegis software, including computers, servers, consoles and displays. Any major upgrade of this installed system or the entire Aegis system requires a hole in the ships hull and the replacement of computers and consoles, which is costly. The virtual twin system subverts this pattern.

4. Small satellite solutions for hypersonic weapons

NASA and the missile defense agency have a plan: a diffuse low earth orbit constellation of hundreds of satellites capable of detecting and tracking hypersonic weapons. Congress seems to support the idea. Both houses of Congress included $108 million in defense policy bills for hypersonic weapon tracking layers in space.

Some people in the US national security community believe that the space sensor layer is the key to dealing with hypersonic threat, but what is the hypersonic threat and how will the space sensor layer change the situation?
