What is Legion Pod?
Legion Pod is a multi-function sensor system that supports collaborative targeting operations in radar-denied environments. Flexible by design and production-ready, Legion Pod is set to serve as the next sensor system of choice for fixed-wing aircraft.
Housed in a 16-inch diameter structure, Legion Pod’s baseline configuration includes an IRST21 sensor and advanced processor for high-fidelity detection and tracking of air-to-air targets.
Designed for flexibility, Legion Pod accommodates additional sensors within its current structure, acting as a simultaneous sensor suite without costly aircraft or system modifications.
Legion Pod has completed integration and flight tests on F-16 and F-15C aircraft, successfully demonstrating its detection and tracking capabilities in representative threat environments.
Legion Pod has a common interface, meaning it’s easily integrated onto any aircraft without affecting that aircraft’s operational flight program.
Due to its open architecture, Legion Pod can accommodate and operate multiple sensors simultaneously, depending on a customer’s requirements.
Legion Pod’s critical technology is produced at Lockheed Martin’s U.S. facilities. Existing depots and repair equipment also enable significant savings in life cycle costs and support.
