Description: The Electro-Optical Targeting System (EOTS), developed in parallel with the EO DAS (Electro-Optical Distributed Aperture System), is an internally mounted, lightweight, affordable, high performance, multi-functional sensor for precision air-to-air and air-to-surface targeting capability. Northrop-Grumman Electronic Systems and Lockheed-Martin Missiles and Fire Control are developing the EO DAS and the EOTS for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF). This multi-function sensor is based on the proven Sniper XR technology and will be carried internally under the F-35 multi-role fighter nose. It will be connected to the F-35 main computer via a high-speed fiber optic interface meeting the F-35 integrated system architecture requirement. The primary role for this sensor is to provide longer range detection and targeting capability compared to precedent generations of aircraft-mounted targeting systems.

The Advanced EOTS is a further evolution of the EOTS electro-optical targeting system intended for the F-35 Block 4 stealth fighter. Advanced EOTS incorporates a wide range of enhancements and upgrades, including short-wave infrared, high-definition television, an infrared marker and improved image detector resolution. These enhancements increase the F-35s recognition and detection ranges, enabling greater overall targeting performance. Lockheed Martin announced the Advanced EOTS in September 2015.
