F-35 Mission Software Glitch May Impact Deployment Schedule

Jane's Report on F-35 Software
In a content preview, OHS Jane's 360 headlines their story with a claim that the F-35's mission software has serious stability concerns that are a risk to DoD operators.

In March 2016, Jane's called this problem a "software glitch":
A software glitch that interferes with the ability of the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter's AN/APG-81 AESA radar working in flight poses the greatest threat to delaying US Air Force (USAF) plans to declare its jets operationally deployable, a top service official told IHS Jane's on 4 March.
