L3 Displays Widow Mission Execution Software At The 2018 AUSA Expo

TacAir Selects Innovative ISR System For The F-5 Aircraft

L3 Technologies will display its ForceX Widow Mission Execution Software will be featured at the 2018 AUSA Annual Meeting and Exposition, October 8-10, at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.

L3’s Widow system was selected by Tactical Air Support, Inc. (TacAir) for its fleet of supersonic F-5 fighter aircraft. Widow is a commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) software offering that provides TacAir cost savings, technological advancements and rapid procurement. The system is designed for quick mission enhancement for the most demanding operational requirements. The first flight of Widow-equipped F-5 fighters is expected later this year.

“Widow is empowered for multi-mission ISR and strike platforms, which is unique in that it enables weapons providers and fire control developers to customize the systems that operate their weapons without changing any of the core technology,” said Jeff Miller, Corporate Senior Vice President and President of ISR Systems. “We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to collaborate with TacAir and contribute to its long and rich history of providing world-class air support.”

A leader in Open Systems Architecture (OSA) for manned and unmanned airborne platforms, L3 ForceX works seamlessly with the integrated flight deck for a fully integrated F-5-equipped solution. The supersonic F-5’s multi-role mission enables attack aircraft to provide simulated air-to-air combat training, close-air support training, tactics development and evaluation support. The aircraft is also a critical tactical training resource for future pilot training.

L3 Technologies is an agile innovator and leading provider of global ISR, communications and networked systems, and electronic systems for military, homeland security and commercial aviation customers. With headquarters in New York City and approximately 31,000 employees worldwide, L3 develops advanced defense technologies and commercial solutions in pilot training, aviation security, night vision and EO/IR, weapons, maritime systems and space. The company reported 2017 sales of $9.6 billion.
