Lockheed Martin has released its Legion multi-function sensor pod.
Legion, which was developed internally by Lockheed, combines the company's IRST21 infrared sensor with advanced networking and data processing, according to a Lockheed news release. Additional sensors can also be added to the pod.
"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," Lockheed said. "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."
Legion flight tests are scheduled for later this year and into 2016.
