The new fighter jet. What will it look like? Experts say it's going to have to deal with enemies equipped for electronic attack and with sophisticated air defenses, passive detection, integrated self-protection, directed energy weapons and cyber attack capabilities. The Air Force Materiel Command said in a notice to the Defense industry, the new aircraft must be able to operate in the "anti-access/area-denial environment that will exist in the 2030-2050 timeframe."
