An interesting article addressing those concerns of the information downloading and the time taken ,this would potentially enable the aircraft to be ready quicker
An interesting read about claims of radar to detect low observable aircraft perhaps there should be a money back guarantee

Actually that reminds me of meeting with the PT, some interesting choice with regards 'all electric' even in areas we've traditional relied on mechanical means because of reliability.
We'll be walking before we run for sure, I don't about any deployments etc but I'd bet my pension they'll be plenty of senior officers who'll be 'can we' or 'are you sure we really need...'
Always fun times...
