Lockheed introduces Legion Pod sensor system

16th February 2015 - 08:17 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Lockheed Martin has introduced its new Legion Pod multi-function sensor system for collaborative targeting operations between multiple aircraft, the company announced on 12 February.

Ken Fuhr, director, fixed wing programmes, Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control, said: 'Legion Pod fills a critical need for today's warfighters, providing unique detection and tracking data for joint targeting operations.'

The Legion Pod is available to support the current F-15C infrared search and track Program of Record for long-range detection and tracking in a wide field of view. It also supports the multi-domain adaptable processing system and offers advanced capability for a variety of platforms, including non-fighter aircraft.

The system allows collaborative targeting operations in radar-denied environments and combines the company's IRST21 infrared sensor with advanced data processing and networking technology. It provides high-fidelity detection and tracking of airborne targets. It is also flexible enough to accommodate additional sensors in its current structure to meet diverse mission requirements across various platforms.
