Bolt AMU: bringing the future faster
Senior Airman Aaron Hooks, an F-35A Lightning II dedicated crew chief assigned to the 57th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron, cleans the canopy of an F-35A at Nellis Air Force Base, Nevada, Dec. 17, 2019. A recent ground test conducted at Nellis proved that Air Force personnel could safely and securely livestream F-35 data directly from the aircraft’s mission systems computers to a connected computer tablet. The demonstration was a milestone for the Fighter Optimization eXperiment (FoX), a project that seeks to rapidly integrate advanced software and hardware technologies to maximize the F-35’s lethality and survivability, while creating an agile development test tool and fielded combat multiplier for all DoD aircraft.
