General Atomics has recently conducted a flight demonstration of two Avenger unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), each equipped with Lockheed Martin’s Legion Pod IRST21, an Infra-Red Search & Track pod designed to detect aerial targets at long range, without using radar.
The IRST will enable the Navy fighters to target adversaries beyond visual and radar range, and enhance survivability in radar denied environment, operate against existing and emerging air threats.
Combining Lockheed Martin’s IRST21 infrared sensor with advanced networking and data processing technology, Legion Pod accommodates additional sensors within its current structure to address diverse mission requirements across a variety of platforms.
