Paul describes Legion Pod's unique features and what's next for the advanced sensor system. From flight tests to sensor configurations - and everything in between - learns about Legion Pod's latest and greatest.
We have a long history of rapidly integrating our infrared search and track a variety of configurations...across platforms worldwide. Whether with our IRST21 on the F/A-18E/F, on the F-16 or on international F-15 platforms, we've completed hundreds of hours of flight tests in representative environments. When we say that we've got experience, we're low risk for our customers...we mean it.
