Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
ORLANDO, Fla., Aug. 12 -- Lockheed Martin received a $163.7 million order from The Boeing Co. to produce the advanced TIGER Eyes Sensor Suite, which will provide targeting, navigation, terrain-following and infrared search and track (IRST) capability for F-15K fighter jets recently ordered by the Republic of Korea Air Force.

The advanced electro-optical suite, based on LANTIRN and US Navy IRST technology, will enable pilots to fly and fight day or night and in adverse weather. It includes mid-wave staring array forward-looking infrared (FLIR) navigation pods with terrain- following radar, mid-wave staring array FLIR targeting pods with a 40,000-foot laser and charge couple device (CCD) TV and a long-range IRST system. The targeting pod design facilitates the precision delivery of air-to-ground weapons at the longer ranges of today's precision weapons. The TV complements FLIR capability during daylight operation.

The award includes the targeting pod, navigation pod and IRST system hardware along with training, spares and logistic support.
