Information gathered by F-35 sensors can be immediately shared with commanders at sea. along with extreme agility. the F-35 is designed to own the skies to defeat the most lethal threats of today – and tomorrow. By combining a wealth of advanced technologies in a single platform. provides an asymmetrical advantage over all adversary aircraft. in the air or on the ground. The F-35’s shape. Decisive Operational Advantage All-aspect advanced stealth enables the F-35 to dramatically reduce the detection and engagement ranges of enemy defense systems or aircraft. the F-35 Lightning II defines the meaning of a 5th generation multirole fighter. F-35 helmet-mounted display . The unmatched situational awareness of the F-35. Very low-observable (VLO) stealth cannot be added on – it must be designed in from the outset. Its next-generation avionics and sensor fusion give the pilot real-time access to battlefield information with spherical coverage and an unparalleled ability to dominate the tactical environment.The World’s Only 5th Generation International Multirole Fighter From defense of the homeland to coalition warfare. Dominating the Skies The F-35 excels in all air-to-surface and air-to-air combat missions while operating around the clock in any threat environment. embedded antennas. aligned edges. Unrivaled Situational Awareness The F-35 features the most powerful and comprehensive integrated sensor package of any fighter aircraft in history. from deep strike and interdiction to the establishment of air dominance. internal weapons and fuel. providing an instantaneous. Joint Force Multiplier and Enabler Embedded. network-enabled capability allows distribution of fused information to enhance and enable other platforms. acceleration and stealth. high-fidelity view of ongoing operations. and special coatings and materials all contribute to its VLO stealth capability.
. regional and international levels to ensure a global supply chain management system that provides quick access to F-35 parts. matching customer metrics and dollars to resources in real time. the concurrent production of all three variants is steadily moving toward full-rate production. Enhanced Readiness The F-35 establishes new levels of operational readiness through a fully integrated sustainment system. ALIS complements the decision-making process. Support centers are organized at the depot. support equipment and technical data. Performance-Based Logistics The F-35 is the first multinational fighter supported primarily in a performance-based logistics environment. Lessons learned from development-aircraft production have been incorporated into production aircraft to increase efficiency and reduce cost. By using industry-standard engineering and manufacturing technologies to ensure precise assembly. F-35 sustainment is a total life-cycle system – a new paradigm for fighter aircraft support that dramatically simplifies maintenance and keeps the aircraft where it belongs – in the air. Innovative Performance The F-35’s common manufacturing processes and parts. Aircraft share common parts. data analysis and decision support – ties together F-35 operational planning and prognostics and health management to enhance the worldwide Autonomic Logistics Global Sustainment Operations Center in Fort Worth. Texas fleet of aircraft. providing higher sortie-generation rates and keeping aircraft ready for mission tasking. performing its mission.F-35 Sustainment – Greater Reliability. Innovative Production. A Global Partnership of Suppliers The supplier network ensures the F-35 receives efficient distribution. The result: greater reliability and cost visibility as the customer defines readiness rates specifically required. Parts requirements are anticipated and requisitioned quickly across the global supply chain. advanced digital design tools and assembly methods help achieve the program’s goals of affordability. systems and expertise. transportation and warehousing anywhere in the world. quality and assembly speed. producing greater reliability and economies of scale designed to yield long-term cost savings and best value for the customer. Autonomic Logistics Information System The Autonomic Logistics Information System (ALIS) – the infrastructure for data collection.
