Lockheed Celebrates 400th F-35 Electro-Optical Targeting System Delivery

Lockheed Martin has delivered the 400th unit of the F-35 Lightning II stealth fighter’s Electro-Optical Targeting System under a low-rate initial production contract.

The EOTS uses forward-looking and infrared search and track tools to help pilots verify targets and deploy weapons that rely on laser guidance and the global positioning system, Lockheed said Wednesday.

“Achieving this milestone demonstrates the growth and dedication of the F-35 EOTS program,” said Michael Williamson, vice president of sensors and global sustainment at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control.

The F-35 is built with features to gather and analyze data in support of the military’s assets on all applicable domains.
