Next Generation Air Dominance is a family of capabiliies that enable Air Superiority in the most challenging operational environments by enforcing the development pillars of digital engineering, agile software developemnt, and open architectures. 

By executing shorter technology development cycles, the program matures technology and reduces risk through prototyping and ooperational experimentation. This delivers enhancements in survivability, lethality, and persistence for a highly-contested environment.

Designed to complement the F-35, F-22, joint, and partner forces in the Air Superiority role, Next Generation Air Dominance is an advanced aircraft program for development of penetrating counter air platforms with multi-domain situational awareness, agile resilient communications, and an integrated family of capabilities.

The program uses a non-traditional acquisition approach to avoid traditional monolithic program schedules and exorbitant life-cycle sustainment costs.This strategy, called the Digital Century Series approach, creates a realistic business case for industry to adopt commercial best practices for key design activities - before a part is even manufactured.
