Japan's sensor based stealth fighter test aircraft has made its first flight in five years
according to Japan's "Daily" short cut, Japan's defense ministry decided that the main expenditure of the next year's defense budget will be used for the research of cutting-edge domestic fighter technology, and plans to develop "advanced technology test aircraft" that can study and display test flights. It is expected that this test machine will be invisible and highly sporty, and will be equipped with domestic engines. The first flight time is set within five years
if the development of the test aircraft is successful, the government will officially launch the development of the first batch of domestic fighter planes, which will be used as the next-generation main model of the aviation self defense force to replace the existing F-15 fighter planes. It is expected that this will lead to opposition from the United States, which is trying to sell fighters to Japan. It is expected that the main aircraft types of the air self defense force in the future will mainly include the following three categories: the six aircraft spring fatigue testing machines in the United States and Europe, which are the alternate aircraft types of F-4 fighters, are a kind of precision experimental equipment with short construction cycle, the semi domestic F-2 fighters equipped with engines developed by the United States, and the national production models that replace the F-15 fighters
the testing machine planned to be developed this time will be a comprehensive work since the technology research headquarters began to conduct factor research in 1995
element research mainly includes the following four aspects: the "high-speed motion flight control system" that makes the body invisible and highly mobile; "Test engine" with thrust of 5 tons; Multifunctional RF sensor with electronic jamming device added to phased array radar; Attached to the surface of the fuselage is a thin cicada like radar called "smart skin"
the fuselage, which is the core of the cooperation with Professor dianyun Zhang, a mechanical engineer at the University of Connecticut, has completed the stealth test in France, and now it is waiting for follow-up development, including flight tests. The fuselage is made of carbon fiber, which reduces the weight. In order to prevent radar reflection, the appearance is mostly designed with curves. It is said that in order to make the thrust change up, down, left and right, three tail wings are installed at the nozzle of the twin engines respectively, making rapid steering possible
