Lockheed said Thursday it will develop software, update hardware and deliver prototypes in an effort to optimize the detection, tracking and ranging capacity of the IRST21 sensor in radar-denied environments.

Paul Lemmo, a vice president at Lockheed’s missiles and fire control business, said the company will support Block II upgrades on the Navy’s Super Hornets through the two contracts.

Lockheed-built IRST21 sensors are mounted in F/A-18E/F centerline fuel tanks and designed to help pilots detect and track airborne threats.
