A team of L3 Technologies and Air Tractor will bring their light-attack aircraft to Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico to participate in the U.S. Air Force’s OA-X demonstration, DoD Buzz reported Monday.
The companies will demonstrate their AT-802L Longsword aircraft through a two-day flight test that will kick off on Aug. 8.
AT-802L Longsword is a variant of the AT-802U aircraft and is designed to perform intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions.
Defense News also reported that Longsword has a glass cockpit, L3 Wescam MX-15 electro-optical infrared sensor and ForceX mission management platform and is designed to fly for at least 10 hours with up to 6,200 pounds of munitions and fuel.
SNC and Embraer will showcase their A-29 Super Tucano aircraft, while Textron will fly its AT-6 Wolverine and Scorpion jet at the OX-A event that aims to help the military branch decide whether to advance a program of record for light-attack planes.
