Lockheed Martin's Legion Pod, a modular infrared search-and-track (IRST) sensor package, has completed its first flight test on Boeing's F-15C Eagle aircraft for the US Air Force.
The test demonstrated its ability to provide long-range detection and tracking of airborne threats. The flight test began at Jacksonville Air National Guard Base in Florida of USA. Using its common interface, Legion Pod was rapidly integrated onto the F-15C without any modifications to the aircraft, the company announced in a statement today.
"Similar to last year's F-16 flight tests, Legion Pod tracked multiple airborne targets in representative scenarios," said Paul Lemmo, vice president of Fire Control/SOF CLSS at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control.
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 US 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.
