General Dynamics Mission Systems at AFA’s Virtual Air, Space & Cyber Conference: Air, Space & Cyber Forces in the Fight
General Dynamics Mission Systems will be a part of the Air Force Association’s 2020 Virtual Air, Space and Cyber Conference to highlight capabilities that allow the Air Force and Space Force to maintain dominance across multiple domains.
General Dynamics has built every nose radome for the more than 4,600 F-16 aircraft produced and has designed and built over 1,500 wideband nose radomes to support AESA radars on aircraft for the US military including the F-15, F/A-18 and F-35.
Bruce Rush, program manager at General Dynamics Mission Systems, discusses what its F-16 Wide Band Radome does, what sets it apart from its predecessors and design challenges involved in its construction in an interview at the Air Force Association's 2017 Air, Space & Cyber conference and trade sho…
