In episode 47 of the Aerospace Advantage podcast, Fractional Orbital Strike, Advanced Tactical Trainer, UAV Strikes, and Next Gen AWACS: The Rendezvous, Mitchell Institute team members talk about some of the top aerospace headlines you’ve seen in recent news. Whether discussing whether discussing why the Chinese are pursuing a new strike technology, ACC’s desire to rethink how it trains pilots, whether “over the horizon strikes” with UAVs will continue to present value, and the latest considerations when it comes to replacing the E-3 AWACS—there are a lot of issues in play. Join us to hear the background context and key points of consideration on these important topics.
