Finally: The Air Force’s Secret New Fighter Jet Will Get Software Updates as it Flies!

DOD Update:

The U.S. Air Force says its next-generation fighter jet will feature a brand-new capability no existing fighter has: the ability to quickly change the onboard software that drives the plane’s hardware. That means Next-Generation Air Dominance’s (NGAD) computer system will allow the aircraft to update software that controls the hardware, allowing the plane to quickly squash software bugs or unlock new capabilities while in the air.
