Advanced EOTS development continues
Lockheed Martin is continuing development of the Advanced Electro-Optical Targeting System (EOTS) for the F-35 Lightning II aircraft.
Advanced EOTS is designed with a larger aperture and provides pilots with multi-spectral sensing options such as high-resolution Mid-Wave IR, Short-Wave IR and Near IR. At the same volume and weight as the original EOTS, Advanced EOTS can be integrated into the F-35 Lightning II as a ‘plug and play’ capability.
The system will be available as an upgrade for F-35 customers looking to enhance performance for both air-to-air and air-to ground day and night missions.
