The Air Force and Navy are pursuing Next Generation Air Dominance (NGAD) programs to replace front-line fighters such as the F-22 and F/A-18 E/F with families of manned and unmanned systems. But, by focusing on hardware like manned aircraft first, the services risk constraining NGAD’s flexibility—repeating mistakes of the F-22 and F-35 programs. Instead, NGAD programs should take a note from tech companies like Apple and prioritize the development of software ecosystems first to ensure ease of use and maximize interchangeability across platforms. By developing a software ecosystem, native NGAD systems and external platforms could work as a team to afford commanders a wider range of plays compared to a tight-knit NGAD family that grows up together.

Please join Hudson Senior Fellows Dan Patt and Bryan Clark, former commander of U.S. Air Force Air Combat Command Mike Holmes, and Dr. Tim Grayson, Special Assistant to the Secretary of the Air Force for a discussion of NGAD and new approaches to acquiring the next generation of military weapons systems.

Reforming the Classification System: Challenges, Approaches, and Priorities

Our national security relies on the careful and deliberate creation, dissemination, and protection of classified information. But some contend that the current system for classifying and declassifying US government records is outdated and imposes significant economic and public policy costs, directly and indirectly harming national security.
