24 September 1987 Falcon Eye Forward-Looking Infrared (FLIR) System
Author Affiliations +
Texas Instruments has completed the development of a new, cost-effective family of FLIR systems named "Falcon Eye" for current and future fighter aircraft. Falcon Eye is based on advanced detector technology in a system concept that merges the FLIR function of a navigation pod and many of the functions of a targeting pod within a conformal sensor package. This new FLIR packaging concept will virtually eliminate the drag penalty associated with externally mounted FLIR systems.
