Jets will be in the control of the attack drones from the flight deck, the bombers will turn away the punishment thereof, anti-aircraft, and real-time intelligence information available to the attacking troops more quickly-all due to the new iterations of the ever-evolving Artificial Intelligence technologies.

The faster the computer processor, the AI-infused algorithms to combine, or “fuse” sensor information, and automated maintenance and check-lists have been informed of the upcoming pilot policy aims to anticipate future threat environments. The various applications of AI, now perform a wide range of functions, which are not just limited to the conventional concepts of a ‘cyberspace’, computer algorithms are getting better and better in a position to get almost instant access to vast pools of information, comparing, and ordering information, and the execution of automated, procedural, and analytical capabilities of human decision makers. In a high-volume, redundant tasks can be carried out by means of computer automation, the human has the freedom to devote energy to pursuing a wide variety of interpretive or conceptual work.

“The bottom line is that the next big thing that is going to be for the US to maintain the qualitative edge of the seamless and ubiquitous sharing of information. The aircraft are part of a sensor-shooter-effector manoeuvre IS complex,” said Ret. Lt.-Gen. David Deptula, Dean of The Mitchell Institute for Aerospace Studies, and the Warrior to Worker.

The F-35 and B-2, for example, provides access to the database, organize the information, and the execution of high-volume, procedural functions and all decided that the advantages of AI-based applications. Such algorithms have, for example, are increasingly able to scan, view, and organize, focus, RETRIEVAL, and data entry, such as navigation information, radar, warning, info, pictures, or video.


The F-35 is, for example, the use of the early editions of artificial intelligence in order to help you acquire, organize, and present information to the pilot on a single screen without a lot of human intervention. Often referred to as the reduction of the cognitive load on the pilot, the effort has been focused on the systematic provision of information to a large number of different sensors on a single screen. The F-35s, much-discussed sensor fusion, for example, there is evidence of this phenomenon, as it relates to the consolidation of the targeting, navigation, and sensor information to the pilots.

In the not too distant future, F-35 pilots will have to take advantage of the AI in order to determine whether a small group of drones flying in the vicinity of the aircraft, the cockpit is in the air, the performance of sensing, reconnaissance, and targeting functions. At the time of the take-off flight path, the sensor payload of weapons and return of airborne drones such as the Air Force’s Predators and Reapers can be coordinated from ground-control stations.

For example, a real-time video images from the electro-optical/infrared sensors on board of the Air Force’s Predator, Reaper and Global Hawk drone can jump straight into the F-35 cockpit, and without that, you don’t have to go to a ground control station. This can speed-up and the tactical input of a presence to reconnaissance missions in the vicinity of where a fighter pilot would want to attack you. In a fast-paced combat situations where both the air-to-air and air-to-ground threats, the higher the speed it could make a big difference.

The computer system, the so-called ALIS, the aircraft, the logistics tail is more automated and is able to radio back information about the engine’s health, or any other device. In a single, secure environment that provides users with an up-to-date information on any of these areas, and the use of web-enabled applications on a distributed network, it is a statement of the ALIS – builder Lockheed Martin says it all. ALIS serves as the information infrastructure for the F-35, transmitting aircraft health and maintenance action information to the appropriate users on a globally distributed network to technicians worldwide, and to the state.

In the run-up to the use of advanced algorithms, as well as the on-board computers for a variety of aircraft functions, which may also be used for human decision-makers in the role of command and control is further explored in a research paper from a London-based think-tank called “the Chatam House, the Royal Institute of International Affairs.”


In the 2017 in the essay titled Artificial Intelligence and the Future of Warfare,” explains the fighter, bomber and pilot, “check lists” that can be enabled using the AI as a “cognitive-aid tools that can help.”

“the pilots rely heavily on procedures to help them manage the complexity of the different tasks. For example, if you have a fire, a light, or another subsystem has a problem, pilots are trained to first stabilize the airplane (as a skill), but then you turn to the manual to determine the correct procedure (see next line). These consolidated proceedings are necessary because there are too many solutions to potential problems, to forget about it,” the Chatam House, the paper wrote.

Given this scenario, an AI-enabled on-board computers to massively change the equation by carrying out a number of these are described in the essential procedural functions to become self-sustaining. This not only reduces pilot workload, but it makes the pilot “cognitive” in order to focus on more pressing, mission-critical tasks.


The Air Force’s stealthy B-2 bomber is yet another example of the airplane is to take a new flight management control processor to increase the performance of the avionics and computer systems on board about 1000 times, Air Force officials said.

The upgrade is a huge improvement over the old system, in which more than a thousand times as much as the processor throughput, memory, and the speed of the network, according to senior Air Force leaders. The new processor will help with automated tools for the navigation and the speed of the B-2s fly-by-wire technology, all of which are designed to allow a pilot to spend more energy on the most important combat tasks with less intervention.

Faster, more powerful processors will enable the aircraft is the avionics, radar, sensors, and communication technologies, in order to better identify and attack enemy targets. The sensor-to-shooter and time will be greatly reduced, so that the B-2 is to launch weapons much more effectively, thus decreasing exposure to enemy fire.


Although it was built in the 1980’s, the B-2 is a powerful plane, which is the use of what’s called a “glass cockpit” flight controls and on-board systems.

The upgrade includes the re-hosting the flight management control processors, the brains of the aircraft, to a much more capable integrated processing units. This would result in the laying of a new fibre optic cable as opposed to the stereo mix bus cable is used, it is, as the B-2’s computers from the 80s are getting maxed out and overloaded with data, Air Force officials have told the Warrior.

Additional computer-based, B-2 upgrades, to include the now-in-development, Defensive Management System to a new sensor system is designed for the purpose of identifying the location of the enemy anti-aircraft batteries. This system, called DMS, is used, the computer is authorized, the sensor technology has to inform the B-2 crews as to where the air defenses. This not only increases mission efficiency, safety and security, but also to ensure that the B-2 stealth bomber missions to continue to be effective and relevant in the years to come. This is yet another instance where computer automation makes it possible to increase the air-to-air attacks, effectiveness in the use of such algorithms to the pilots critical information in real-time.
