Lockheed Martin today introduced Legion Pod - a new multi-function sensor system that supports collaborative targeting operations between multiple aircraft in radar-denied environments.
Combining Lockheed Martin's IRST21TM infrared sensor with advanced networking and data processing technology, Legion Pod provides high-fidelity detection and tracking of airborne targets. Designed for flexibility, Legion Pod also accommodates additional sensors within its current structure to address diverse mission requirements across a variety of platforms.
"Legion Pod fills a critical need for today's warfighters, providing unique detection and tracking data for joint targeting operations," said Ken Fuhr, director of fixed wing programs at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. "As a flexible, production-ready system, Legion Pod can be quickly procured and integrated to meet current and emerging customer requirements."
Legion Pod is available to support the current F-15C infrared search and track program of record, which requires long-range detection and tracking in a wide field of view. Due to its flexible design, Legion Pod also supports the emerging Multi-Domain Adaptable Processing System and offers advanced capability for a variety of platforms, including non-fighter aircraft.
Lockheed Martin developed Legion Pod through internal investment, and pod components have completed limited qualification. Initial flight tests will occur this year, with additional flight tests planned for 2016.
