Good lord. even if we assume the pilot was only 15,000ft, which I think is way too low, to have the spherical system detect a thermally insulated biologic that is underwater is crazy!

Now F-35 pilots must learn Submarinese :

"Conn, sonar: Master 2 is classified as Biologic." :twisted:

Probably the whale was just near the surface - during a transit perhaps - this is a quote:
"...I’m getting this really fuzzy image of a boat down below me out in the Pacific’. And he goes: ‘Oh, wait. The boat jumped out of the water. It was a whale!’ He was looking at underneath the water with the system.”..."

WOW, simply WOW :shock:

Now it's time to equip the F-35 with Torpedoes as well and add it another role - ASW :mrgreen:

I'm joking of course (or maybe not :wink: ) but and continuing with joking:
- I'm sure that Giovanni de Briganti will come up with an article saying that this once again proves the failure of the F-35 since it shouldn't be detecting underwater whales :mrgreen: :roll:

Just looked at the YouTube version of that video and what's the description there. It says:

Shows the capabilities captured by EOTS Mid-Wave IR camera (left) and Advanced EOTS Short-Wave IR camera (right) looking at a building.


Another similar video from LM. Also showing difference between SWIR and MWIR imagery.


Of course MWIR would have superior range performace against hot or warm targets. But in resolution and contrast SWIR is definitely better when there is at least some light available.

Thanks for the heads up hornetfinn :thumb:

I'm glad to know that my impressions/opinion on the subject were correct.
