The future of the Air Force tactical and strategic forces will depend upon the ability of the future fighter-bomber to be able to effectively penetrate enemy defenses, kill the targets and survive while at the same time being easily supportable in the field. That future technology is now being matured in the exploratory development program of the Aeronautical Systems Division, Flight Dynamics Laboratory, Flight Control Division and is aimed at providing options for the solutions to the requirements of the Air Force such as avoiding detection, increasing the probability of finding and destroying targets with multiple kills per pass, having enhanced crew capability and improved force availability. These technologies will give the future fighter-bomber the capability for night all-weather autonomous operation thus enabling the pilot of the future to quickly kill targets with increased survivability, while at the same time being easily supportable at high sortie rates in the field.
