The Revolution in Combat Aircraft Software

September 21

10:00 EDT / 15:00 BST / 16:00 CEST


The biggest new U.S. Air Force innovation of this decade may not be a new stealth fighter but rather the ability to upgrade platforms on the fly with new software, the way an iPhone uploads a new app. The military has been working for years to shift its periodic waterfall upgrades to this more commercial approach and the Air Force is getting close to making it a reality.


Aviation Week Defense Editor Steve Trimble and Executive Editor, Technology Graham Warwick discuss how the service is moving toward its goal, what that will mean for the platforms, how the software will be used and how the changes are likely to impact the industrial base.

What’s Ahead for the Space Development Agency?

June 4


The Pentagon’s Space Development Agency (SDA) is finally gaining traction and seeking pitches for its architecture of satellites that can fulfill military objectives for communication, navigation, missile warning and tracking. Eventually, the agency may send thousands of satellites into orbit. But what is that constellation going to look like? What are the risks ahead? If the U.S. is buying thousands of satellites, how does that change its military strategy? And how might that affect how the commercial industry uses space?


SDA’s Director, Derek Tournear, joins Aviation Week Network to discuss these questions and how his organization is likely to transition into the fledgling Space Force.

How COVID-19 Is Affecting Top Defense Aircraft Programs

May 14

0930 EDT / 1430 BST / 2130 SGT


Despite defense manufacturing being considered “essential” work during the coronavirus crisis in the U.S., UK and elsewhere, factories around the world have faced work stoppages and slowdowns. That leaves countries counting on the delivery of new aircraft waiting. In some cases, such as a delay to deliveries of the Boeing KC-46 tanker, might be welcome news, but in India – which has already been watching its fighter fleet dwindle – slower deliveries of Dassault Rafales will hurt.


 - How might COVID change the military aircraft market now and in the future?

 - Which programs are likely to experience production slowdowns that last?

 - Which fleets will be hit the hardest?


Join Aviation Week Network and industry analysts while we look at how the market for high-profile military aircraft programs has changed since the arrival of COVID-19.

Defence Spending & COVID-19: What are the short and long-term impacts?

April 14: U.S. Edition


While the defence sector has so far been spared the immediate and severe effects of COVID-19 currently wreaking havoc in the commercial sector, it has not escaped unscathed with production lines and supply chains disrupted. Previous global crises suggest that the pain for the defence industry will come later as the full economic and fiscal ramifications manifest themselves in government budgetary policy around the world.


What effect has the COVID-19 crisis had on the defence sector to date, and what impact will it have in the coming years?


Join Aviation Week Network to learn about the challenges already being faced, and to understand the short and long-term impact of the crisis on programmes and budgets over the coming years.
