Threats to Air Supremacy; USAF Association Presentation




The United States Air Force Association presentation on emerging Threats to Air Supremacy:

Additional issues that may, (soon) affect our traditional “Power Projection” doctrine?

1.) The primary weapon for F-15, F-16, F-18, F-22, and F-35 is (will be) the 
AIM-120 AMRAAM medium-range air-to-air missile. This is the weapon depicted as being defeated by Digital Radio Frequency Memory (DFRM) jamming/deception technologies in USAF animation.

2.) The increasing adoption of Low Probability of Intercept (LPI) Radar schemes in
SAM and airborne combat systems by a future opponent?

3.) The future of traditional air-to-surface anti-radiation class like AGM-88 HARM (high-speed anti-radiation missile) if an LPI environment is deployed by an opponent?

4.) Digital Radio Frequency Memory (DFRM) can also be fitted to legacy aircraft to deny BVR radio spectrum engagement by opponents as well as dogfight radar gun-sighting? DFRM could (also) allow current/future platforms to slip thru SAM radio-based (radar) engagement systems?

Your thoughts?
