The United States Air Force has been seeking to utilize smaller radar satellites in order to discover moving objects on the ground as well as the Space Force will help to make it occur, the head of space operations General John Raymond said in a statement.

A project to demonstrate the utilization of radar satellites for GMTI that short for ground transferring target indicator which has been followed in secret since 2018 by the Air Force Rapid Capabilities Office.

Raymond further added that this effort will be talked more about to permit additional participation from the commercial space industryHe further revealed that the both Space Force and the Air Force are collectively operating on different ideas for the deployment of GMTI satellites.

According to the report, the Air Force recently utilized big aircraft that called as JSTARS (Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar System) which are mostly equipped with several radar sensors to terminate objects against the ground clutter.

JSTARS need bigger crew as well as the Air Force for decades has been worried about its aircraft as well as operators that are unsafe to enemy air-defense missiles when moving over difficult zonesRader satellites as well as surveillance from space has been outlook of the National Reconnaissance Office.

The United States' position as the sole remaining superpower on Earth is in large part thanks to its air force.

That organization—the United States Air Force, or USAF—turns 70 years old today, and since we know there are plenty of plane spotters and aviation geeks here at Ars, we thought we'd assemble a gallery of some of our favorite USAF planes to celebrate.

Of course, the US military had access to air power before September 18, 1947.

The Army started playing around with planes a few short years after the Wright brothers took to the skies and proved heavier-than-air flight was possible, getting its first airplane—a Wright Flyer, naturally—in 1909.

By World War II, the US Army had its Army Air Forces, which flew combat missions in the European and Pacific theaters.

The Cold War was good business for the aerospace industry that supplied the USAF.

The wild blue yonder -- it's been the domain of the US Air Force for seven decades.

That's when the USAF became an independent military branch, breaking away from the US Army at the dawn of jet planes and the atomic age.

In this slideshow, we'll take an anniversary tour of the aircraft that Air Force pilots have flown, from 70 years ago to the present day.

Pictured here are F-16 Fighting Falcons flying in tight formation for the Thunderbirds, the Air Force's demonstration squadron.

Just like bombers, cargo aircraft were getting bigger, too.

This is a Douglas C-124C Globemaster at the National Museum of the United States Air Force in Dayton, Ohio.

Caught in a net

How do you bring a bad drone down?

Net-launching bazooka

The Skywall 100, developed by UK company Open Works Engineering, does exactly this.

Robert Bunker, a counterterrorism expert at TRENDS Research & Advisory based in Abu Dhabi, says that there are likely to be two distinct occasions when autonomous drones need to be stopped: for public safety and during war.

Bunker also mentions hand-held lasers capable of damaging drones optics, and rubber-ball guns based on existing non-lethal weapons.

Military operations are different.

Its challenge will be spotting and targeting small, autonomous drones as they approach.

This, combined with poor working conditions and fewer paths for career advancement, has led to fierce resistance to drones inside the organisation.

Research and even some limited production runs of robots aimed at elderly care are emerging.

It's easy to laugh at the state of some of these projects today, but ten years from now we'll collectively be climbing the walls for any help we can get.

Let's not even discuss Japan's population distribution.

The current pinnacle of robots taking over human jobs is probably Japan's robot hotel.

There's a robot dinosaur guarding the entrance, robot desk clerks, baggage handlers, and many others.

The ready for combat F-35 has run into headwinds again, with 15 of the F-35A variant grounded in America because cooling line insulation is cracking up.

Various reports state that the problem is non-conforming insulation in lines carrying coolant in the plane's wings.

The F-35 passes its poly-alpha-olefin PAO coolant through the fuel tanks to chill it.

During maintenance, the insulation around PAO lines was found to be peeling and crumbling , and leaving residue in the tanks.

So far, 13 aircraft belonging to the US Air Force have been grounded, and two more belonging to Norway.

On Wednesday, Boeing and the US Air Force confirmed that they are close to a deal for two Boeing 747-8 Intercontinental commercial airliners that will be converted over to serve as the nation's next generation presidential transports.

The two brand-new jumbo jets were abandoned after Russia's Transaero airline bust in 2015.

At the time, Boeing had already built two of the four 747s Transaero had on order.

So instead of delivering the planes, Boeing completed flight testing and sent them to the California desert where they have been waiting for a new buyer.

Now it seems the planes are now destined to take on the call sign, Air Force One.

Normally, the planes are referred to by their tail numbers — 28000 and 29000 — but when the Commander and Chief steps on board, they take on the call sign "Air Force One."

By the time you read this article, the United States Air Force may well be testing their newest protocols involving GPS.

As such, it’s entirely possible that Pokemon GO doesn’t work – or you’re told you can’t access GPS, and cannot play as a result.

The United States Air Force is set to test some precautionary technology that relies on a variety of wireless signals to navigate.

Navigation for war machines – silent fighters, airplanes of the night… you know – that sort of thing.

It’s called NAVSOP, and when the bad guys launch their own GPS attacks, the USAF will (hopefully) be ready.

The tradeoff is a test run here in the USA that’ll intermittently chop off our access to GPS.

We’ve already seen AI conquer masters of chess, Go, and StarCraft II. But could it defeat an Air Force pilot in a (virtual) dogfight? DARPA has spent the last year trying to answer that question, through an aerial warfare contest called the AlphaDogfight Trials. The Pentagon’s “mad science” unit created the competition to assess how AI could assist pilots, and attract developers to its Air Combat Evolution (ACE) program. But before the algorithms could enter the cockpit, they had to earn the trust of their human comrades. “Warfighters trust things that work, and this contest is the first step along…

It’s no secret that the US Air Force wants flying cars. The branch of the US Military announced last year that it was starting to explore electric vertical take off and landing  (eVTOL) craft, and earlier this year, said it wants 30 vehicles in service by 2030. After its first demonstration last week, the Air Force has just got a little closer to this goal. It just so happens that the demo took place 112 years to the day after the Wright Brothers delivered their first military vehicle — the US Air Force seemed quite proud about that. On Thursday…

Apparently, backing up the database is not covered in this document.

The database of the Air Force's Automated Case Tracking System ACTS —which is used by the Air Force Inspector General's Office to manage investigations into complaints from whistleblowers of waste, fraud, and abuse; Freedom Of Information Act requests; and congressional inquiries—has become corrupted, rendering over 100,000 case files dating back to 2004 unreadable.

And because of the way the database was backed up, an Air Force spokesperson said that neither the service nor Lockheed Martin—the contractor that operates the ATCS system for the Air Force—can recover the data.

"The database crashed and there is no data," Ann Stefanak of Air Force Media Operations said in a statement to press.

"We ve kind of exhausted everything we can to recover the data internally ... and now we re going to outside experts to see if they can help."

While much of the data in the system was historical, ACTS is primarily used to track ongoing investigations and inquiries—and those cases are now "experiencing significant delays, Stefanek said.
