Hill, Robins to Provide F-35 Software Sustainment
Hill has earned another big piece in the future of sustaining the F-35, America’s newest fighter jet.
The base already provides depot level modifications and maintenance on the Air Force’s entire F-35 fleet. Now, the Ogden Air Logistics Complex’s 309th Software Maintenance Group will be part of an Air Force and Navy team that provides organic software support for the F-35.
More than 8 million lines of code help provide the multi-role F-35’s flight controls, radar, communications, electronic attack, sensor fusion, weapons deployment and logistics.
The 309th SMXG here is currently planned to oversee pilot and processor systems, the autonomic logistics information system and software integration.
The Ogden ALC will build on successful software work already performed on the F-16 and F-22, said Kelly Capener, 309th SMXG director.
