The F-35 as a “Flying Sensor Fusion Engine”: Positioning the Fleet for “Tron” Warfare By Ed Timperlake

http://www.sldinfo.com/the-f-35-as-a-%e ... d-warfare/

"...The Emergence of Tron Warfare

The F-35 is known as a 5th generation player in the state-of-the-art for both the Air-to-Air Fighter, and Air-to-Air Attack combat roles.

It also adds an “electronic” or “tron” warfare component to the fight.

Electronic Warfare (EW) is a complex subject with many discreet but also connected elements.

EW was designed inherently into the F-35 airframe and C5ISR-D Cockpit.

EW can include offensive operations to identify an opponents emissions in order to and fry spoof or jam their systems. In successful “tron” war, often-kinetic kill weapons can be fired. An F-35 can be a single sensor/shooter or off load it’s track to other platforms such as; planes, ships and subs and eventually UCAS-Unmanned Aerial Combat Systems.

The kinetic kill shot is usually a high speed missile designed to HOJ (home on jam). It has been said on the modern battlefield — air, sea or land — if not done correctly, “you emit and you die.”...

BEST to read it all at the JUMP!

Highlights?

Skaff: Agility from a fighter pilot point of view is fighter performance. A classic example
was the YF-23. It was a phenomenal interceptor, but that’s all it could do. It couldn’t
turn. It didn’t have great agility, fighter performance.

I'm not sure that is right. From what I have read, the huge control surfaces on the YF-23 made in at least as maneuverable as the YF-22 in everything but post-stall.

And finally, the exercise showed that 5th Generation fighters with this enhanced SA
tend to function as Air Battle manager for entire package. Even when F-22 was weapon
bingo it stayed in fight as battle manager!

Hmmmmm...
I'm thinking interesting things could be done in selecting targets for data-linked cruse missiles.
