The sensor, integrated on the nose of the helicopter, met test objectives that verified line-of-sight stability and image quality, and completed more than eight flight-test hours. INFIRNO's 15-in. turret features HD midwave-infrared and color sensors, advanced image processing, multimode tracker, laser designator/rangefinder, and geolocation capabilities.
