U.S. commanders said the F-22A to break through Russian air defense system can be used to detect
U.S. F-22 will be called the remote and invisible features, will allow it to break through China and Russia are sold around the world the most advanced air defense weapons systems.
LONDON Dec. 22 news: According to Air Force Times, 21 reported that the Air Force director of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) of the Deputy Chief of Staff Lieutenant General David Daiputela said, F-22 fighters available to perform aerial reconnaissance missions. He said, F-22 long-range and stealth characteristics, will allow it to break through China and Russia are sold all over the world’s most advanced air defense weapons systems.
reported that Daiputela plans to use will be equipped with sensors F-22 “Raptor” fighters to gather intelligence, because intelligence collection activities do not require a specific platform. Daiputela Air Force Association will be in a speech referred to this point. At that time, he referred to the multiple uses of aircraft and said: “If one day I have the final say, I will abolish the traditional, industrial-age label,” so that each aircraft have a variety of missions.
In his speech during the Deputula very confident that the F-22 can act as a ISR (intelligence, search and reconnaissance) tool, the U.S. official said this was called “Hoover electric dust collector device intelligence “fighter” absolute “to replace the RC-135″ Rivet Joint (Rivet Joint) “electronic monitoring aircraft. However, Deputula also pointed out that the use of the F-22 reconnaissance mission also faces technical challenges – rapid access to intelligence data planes.
reported that now the F-22 F-22 can only be shared with other data, through the “formation within the data link” (Intra-Flight Datalinks, IFDLs), F-22 fighters to the enemy on airspace and other F-22 to share and exchange data without being detected. However, in last year’s “Joint Expeditionary Force Exercise” in, F-22 fighter using a modified Northrop – Grumman’s Battlefield Airborne Communications Node (Battlefield Airborne Communications Node), realized with several old aircraft fleet within the data sharing.
Deputula that, F-22 to meet him one of the greatest needs: it is remote, stealth fighters, able to circumvent Russia in world wide sales of the most advanced air defense system . Nevertheless, Deputula also noted that UAVs have “great potential.” He also briefed the participants demonstrated a product called “MQ-Xa” medium-sized stealth UAV concept. In the near future, UAVs will be able to use this concept of “modular payload” perform close air support, intelligence/surveillance and reconnaissance missions, electronic warfare, communications relay/collection/transfer tasks, and special intelligence reports/monitoring and reconnaissance missions and air refueling missions.
reported, December 2 at Deputula related comments published two days after it announced a U.S. Air Force called the RQ-170 “sentinel” stealth UAV is over in Kandahar, Afghanistan flight. Although the Air Force and the “Sentinel” producer Lockheed Martin companies did not disclose more information on the UAV, but it is widely suspected that the UAV is to monitor Afghanistan’s neighbors Iran, because Iran will concentrate its air defense In the border with Iraq.
However, the Teal Group senior analyst 史蒂夫扎洛加 speculated that the plane in Kandahar RQ-170 is just a prototype. This UAV flight in Kandahar, will allow the Air Force in a more realistic environment for the conduct flight tests. He added: “I can not imagine the U.S. government would be willing to allow the UAV in Iran (to be shot down),” because it makes the latest U.S. Air Force stealth technology falling into the hands of Iran.
Zhaluo Jia also said the media nicknamed “Kandahar Beast” UAV RQ-170 may be a large number of unmanned planes in the secret tip of the iceberg. UAVs such as the RQ-170 aircraft will be partially met Daiputela the ability to penetrate the twenty-first century stealth aircraft, air defense requirements.
his view, this stealth UAV might be the U.S. Air Force to replace its F-117 stealth fighter aircraft and start the construction of part of the project, designed to suppress enemy air defense capability. However, F-22 fighters have their own mission, not the suppression of air defense capability of the aircraft. (Compiled: Spring)
