If i'm not wrong there isn't a thread yet for new and future 5,5th and 6th generation fighterjet programs, so lets start one.
Thats quite extreme....and maybe one of the differences between 5th and 6th generation jetfighters, even more data transfer and situational awareness.The sixth-generation jet — planned by the U.K., Sweden and Italy and set to enter service after 2030 — will bristle with new technology, from its weaponry and propulsion to a virtual cockpit projected inside the pilot’s helmet.
But the group set the bar high in October by announcing the fighter’s radar would process a quantity of data equivalent to nine hours of high-definition video — or the internet traffic of a medium-sized city — every second.
Radar engineers on the sixth-generation Tempest fighter program say they will break data-processing records by way of miniaturization and going digital.
