SAAB's solution to modern air defense (mini-talk)...they agree with the US Navy...

After watching this video it occurs to me.  The escort jammer mission should really be given to high speed, combat capable, stealthy UAVs.  Imagine a scenario where an escort jamming UAV flies out ahead of a strike package of Super Hornets, loiters over the area jamming whatever pops up.  They remain in the area before, during and after the strike to protect the strikers and even conduct post strike analysis.

Regardless it seems that SAAB and the US Navy is on the same page when it comes to penetration of enemy air defenses.

The USAF is stuck on stealth being the solution.  On that I believe they're wrong.  Time will tell.
