Israel to install its own cyber defenses on F-35 jets

FORT WORTH, TEXAS – Israel will install its own cyber defenses on the F-35 jets it will receive this year, the air force’s Chief of Staff, Brig.-Gen. Tal Kelman, said on Tuesday.

Kelman praised the jet across the board, saying it would significantly upgrade Israel’s ability to defend itself, but added that he had been greatly disturbed by the issue of cyber defense for the stealth aircraft.

After negotiations with the US and the plane’s manufacturer, Lockheed Martin, an agreement was reached enabling the Israel Air Force (IAF) to create Israeli cyber defense solutions.
