Advanced EOTS to Boost Situational Awareness of F-35 Pilots
ORLANDO, FL: Lockheed Martin’s advanced electro-optical targeting system (EOTS) is now available for the F-35’s Block 4 development.
The Electro-Optical Targeting System for F-35 Lightning II is a high-performance, lightweight, multifunctional system that provides precision air-to-air and air-to-surface targeting capability. EOTS is integrated into F-35 lightning fuselage with a durable sapphire window and is linked to the aircraft’s integrated central computer through a high-speed fiber optic interface. With EOTS onboard, fighter pilots can enhance their situational awareness and perform reconnaissance and precisely deliver laser and GPS-guided weapons.
Advanced EOTS hosts an array of features and upgrades such as short-wave infrared, high-definition television, an infrared marker and improved image detector resolution. The enhancements will increase F-35 pilots’ recognition and detection ranges thus improving overall targeting performance. Advanced EOTS is designed to replace EOTS and will be available for the F-35’s Block 4 development. Due to the similarity in the build of its predecessor, Advanced EOTS can be installed with minimum changes to the F-35’s interface.
“In today’s environment, threats to our warfighters continue to evolve,” says Paul Lemmo, VP, Fire Control/SOF CLSS, Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. “With significant capability and performance enhancements, Advanced EOTS ensures that F-35 pilots can stay ahead of these threats, detecting targets faster and at greater distances while remaining unseen.”
