The U.S. Navy is soliciting industry input for its plan to install an electro-optical sensor and targeting system in the service’s special operations aircraft, Defense Systems reported Tuesday.
A Naval Surface Warfare Center notice says the service wants information on a gimbaled system that is compatible with the Lockheed Martin-built C-130J in terms of hardware and interfaces, according to the report.
The Navy also wants a system that is able to handle environmental factors such as shock and vibration, altitude and air speed, the report says.
Companies need to submit information about their platform’s fire control system compatibility with the Special Operations Command’s Precision Strike Package mission system and multi-sensor system that covers electro-optical color daylight, infrared and low light capable cameras, Defense Systems reports.
The service is also looking for a system that supports high-definition and standard video formats, features manual and automatic high-accuracy target tracking function and geo-targeting, the report says.
Submissions for the solicitation will close on March 18, according to the report.
