“Hostile air defense systems are becoming more sophisticated and accessible in global conflict zones,” said Ed Zoiss, president of Harris’ electronic systems business.

Zoiss added he believes the B-52 aircraft should be equipped with electronic warfare technology that could mitigate future threats.
