David Goldfein: DoD Requesting $135M for ‘Penetrating’ Warfighting Tech

U.S. Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. David Goldfein said at a recent event in Washington, D.C. that the Department of Defense will request $135B for warfighting capabilities intended to penetrate, National Defense reported Tuesday. The DoD’s fiscal year 2020 budget request will include stealth aircrafts like the F-35 joint strike fighter and other technologies intended to infiltrate the defense systems of adversaries.

The move comes after reports of China and Russia developing “anti-access” systems that could leave the U.S. at risk. The president’s FY 2020 budget request, which is slated to be released in March, will include further information on funding priorities and the planned penetrating capability portfolio.
