The tri-service F-35 fighter is the key enabler of U.S. air dominance through mid-century. Everybody who follows it knows that the fighter is stealthy, but fewer people realize it has the most sophisticated electronic warfare system ever devised. It is the synergy between an integrated stealth design and an agile, multi-function electronic warfare suite that makes the F-35 nearly invincible — so much so that in military exercises it typically downs over 20 adversary aircraft for every loss it takes. I have written a commentary about F-35 electronic warfare capabilities for Forbes here.
