2018 Special Operations Forces Industry Conference Coverage

While at SOFIC, the AT-802U will display its multi-sensor payload capability and will be configured with electro-optical infrared sensors, synthetic aperture radar and signals intelligence sensors.

Each of these can be simultaneously employed on the Air Tractor – L3 Aerospace Systems AT-802L Longsword and integrated on its highly agile and interoperable L3 ForceX Widow Mission Management System. The advanced interoperable sensor configuration on display at SOFIC will include:

  • Horizon Technologies’ Flying Fish XPOD (Sat-phone SIGINT System) with integrated L3 Wescam MX-15 EO-IR sensor
  • Thales I-Master GMTI SAR
  • BAE Systems Tactical SIGINT Payload
  • Raytheon Multi-Spectral Targeting System (MTS-A) EO/IR sensor with new mounting pylon designed specifically for the AT-802U

Even while carrying all these sensors, five additional wing stations will be loaded with precision munitions. This configuration effectively meets the operational needs of US Special Operation Forces and US partner nations. Additionally, the AT-802U is specifically designed for austere field operations and benefits from Air Tractor’s existing international sustainment system.
