"Similar to last year's F-16 flight tests, Legion Pod successfully tracked multiple airborne targets in representative scenarios," said Paul Lemmo, vice president of Fire Control/SOF CLSS at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. "With our most advanced technology, a hot production line and established logistics depot, Legion Pod is ready to fulfill urgent capability gaps and support critical air-to-air missions."
Equipped with an IRST21® infrared sensor and advanced networking and data processing technology, Legion Pod provides high-fidelity detection and tracking of airborne targets. It also accommodates additional sensors without costly system or aircraft modifications.
Legion Pod is available to meet the requirements of the U.S. Air Force's F-15C infrared search and track program of record, which include long-range detection and tracking in a wide field of view. Legion Pod also offers a variety of capabilities for other fighter and non-fighter aircraft.
