Using of satellites makes F-35 stealth fighter visible to everyone

TOKYO, (BM) – The American “invisibility” F-35 can be seen from satellites, said university professor Shizuoka Kazuhisa Ogawa on June 6 in an interview with RIA Novosti, learned BulgarianMilitary.com.

A military expert serving as an adviser to the three prime ministers of Japan noted that stealth fighters can be easily detected from space using satellites. The F-35 Lightning II is no exception.

Kazuhisa Ogawa explained that with a modern on-board computer, the opposing side pilot is able to determine the direction, height and speed of the “invisible” aircraft using satellite data. Moreover, the time of day does not matter for the battle.

The lack of stealth technology is due to the fact that the material absorbs and scatters the radar waves that hit the aircraft in front. However, they are powerless against satellites flying above aircraft.
