    "Inventing the Joint Strike Fighter"

    This presentation will describe the technical and program challenges involved in developing the F-35
    Joint Strike Fighter and show how an innovative idea became an international program with
    engineers from half a dozen countries developing a single replacement aircraft for multiple aircraft
    types. The F-35 Joint Strike Fighter was developed to meet the multirole fighter requirements of the
    US Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, and our allies. The Air Force variant is a supersonic, single engine
    stealth fighter. The Navy variant has a larger wing and more robust structure in order to operate from
    aircraft carriers, while the Marine Corps variant incorporates an innovative propulsion system that can
    be switched from a turbofan cycle to a turbo shaft cycle for vertical takeoff and landing. This
    propulsion system enabled the X-35 to become the first aircraft in history to fly at supersonic speeds,
    hover, and land vertically. The development team won the Collier Trophy, which recognizes "the
    greatest achievement in aeronautics or astronautics in America" each year, for this accomplishment.

    Since this is a virtual AIAA event, everyone is invited to our section event!
