Lockheed Martin’s Legion Pod that was integrated onto the F-16 has successfully tracked multiple airborne targets in its first flight test.
Legion Pod was integrated onto the F-16 without making any hardware or software changes to the aircraft. Additional flight tests on the F-16 and F-15C will continue throughout the year.
Paul Lemmo, vice president of fire control at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control was quoted as saying by the company on Tuesday, “Legion Pod is a production-ready, multi-sensor system,”.
“With our most advanced hardware and software, a hot production line and an established logistics depot, Legion Pod provides a high-performance, low-risk, affordable capability to warfighters today.” Lemmo added.
Equipped with an IRST21 infrared sensor and advanced networking and data processing technology, Legion Pod provides high-fidelity detection and tracking of airborne targets.
Moreover, 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 F-15C infrared search and track program of record, which include long-range detection and tracking in a wide field of view. Its flexible design and open systems architecture enable Legion Pod to offer a variety of capabilities for other fighter and non-fighter aircraft.
