The US Air Force is completing the design of a new sensor system for the F-22 Raptor stealth fighter, including software upgrades, hardware changes, integrating new antennas and improving the data link system,

According to military expert Kris Osborn, compatibility between sensors, two-way data links and technical integration measures between these two 5th generation fighters are key to the US air force’s combat strategy.

`The F-22’s Update 6 software package will help connect with important sensor systems of the US Air Force. When the F-22 is equipped with new weapons, sensor equipment also needs to be upgraded to operate.

The US Air Force said the F-22 will be upgraded to operate AIM-120D and AIM-9X Block II surface-to-air missiles, as well as improve the ability to identify ground targets from 2019. The current F-22 model

AIM-120D AMRAAM is a medium-range missile with the ability to operate in all weather conditions, using a `fire and forget` mechanism, guided by active radar.

The F-22 and F-35 pair will become very dangerous.

Meanwhile, the AIM-9X Block II is equipped with a new detonator and digital control device to ensure safety during installation and in flight.

The US Air Force must upgrade software and sensors to adapt to future threats.

The F-22 is considered by the US to be the fighter with the best air-to-air combat capabilities in the world.

Once a safe air corridor is established, the F-22 will maintain the ability to dominate the sky, while the F-35 will attack in close support of the ground or conduct intelligence, reconnaissance and surveillance (ISR) missions.

Combining the separate technological advantages of these two fighters will help the US Air Force have no opponents in air-to-air combat, Scout military experts assess.
