LM needs to rename EOTS. Too bland. Too boring.

How about Panther Eyes?

(Not a bad video, btw. Thx for posting.)
Take an F-16, stir in A-7, dollop of F-117, gob of F-22, dash of F/A-18, sprinkle with AV-8B, stir well + bake. Whaddya get? F-35.

Very true. I'd also rename ASQ-239 Barracuda to Panther Growl... When you hear the growl, you are in deep sh%#..:)

Of course Barracuda is also pretty badass name in itself.

How about Panther Prowl? Cuzz it's passive -- you're never going to hear it.

How an F-35 fighter pilot selects targets for a shooting list – video shows off cockpit technology
24 Aug 2021 päivitetty

""In fourth-generation fighter jets, the data generated by the sensors is presented to pilots with a wide range of data streams located in different parts of the cockpit," summarizes the difference between lockheed Martin's F-35 test pilot Scott "Shark" McLaren's older and modern fighter's cockpit technology.

McLaren flew the F-35 for the first time as a U.S. Air Force lieutenant colonel in 2010; He's the 14th pilot to get into the controls of the plane type. McLaren, which has accumulated about 800 hours on board, was also an F-35A pilot in both Finnish and Swiss fighter launches.

Before the F-35, McLaren was an F-16 pilot. In the very basics, machines are no different. Both types of planes have a throttle lever on the left side of the cockpit (as is common for military aircraft), and the joystick-type stick is a small joystick-type stick on the right side.

But since the data comes from more than one source, it takes time to process.

"I use some radar information, another information from, say, a targeting tank, after which I process information in my head: what the environment looks like based on the information I receive, after which I make a decision."

In the case of modern multirole fighters like the F-35, there is talk of sensor fusion. In practice, the concept means that the computer processes data from different sensors and data links in the F-35 from other sources and presents it on the screen in one big picture."

Photo: Layout. There is increasingly one large display in the cockpits of multirole fighters that can be customized according to the type of mission and/or the pilot's personal preferences. Photo: Karoliina Vuorenmäki https://images.almatalent.fi/cx0,cy0,cw ... 35751ca695

Video played ok for me. It's in English with what I assume is Finnish subtitles. Very similar to the normal reviews. What I would like to see is a block 4 layout.

Ok, it seems like the article sometimes is behind paywall and sometimes isn't. Strange...

Anyway, optimist is correct that it has Finnish subtitles. I can play it, but then again this is local Finnish newspaper and the video might not play well from other countries. I just think this was nice short review about how the sensor fusion and displays work in F-35 with some interesting tidbits. Block 4 layout would definitely be interesting to see...

Fair enough - odd things happen on the internet. When I was at the link for the video nothing played or had any indication it would play while the strange language etc. was just unfathomabbllee. :mrgreen: I'll try again later now that I'm on the fast NBN broadband here. Wotta revelation. File upload that used to take 30 hours now takes 30 minutes. I'M SOLD! :roll:

I can understand it might've been a bit perplexing... :mrgreen:

Too bad that video can't be linked or downloaded... Most of the information has been presented in other videos, so you are not missing that much.

With EDGE & IE11 using NBN broadband I could see no video. On web/youtube there are great PCD videos ENGADGET.

Spaz, perhaps try a different browser? Chrome or Firefox?

Recently I tried to access a website on behalf of a client. No workie with Firefox. On a whim I tried Chrome, and walla! I got in.

(Edge is based on Chrome's engine, I believe, so if Edge no workie, then Chrome may not either. Doesn't hurt to try tho, esp. now that you have entered the 21st century with a broadband (am guessing) Internet connection.)

Thanks however just saying that the video can be seen does not mean a lot given the strange language on view. For example does one click the left or right dialog? I chose the highlighted right one but who knows. Used Firefox this time - no clue as to how to activate video. Having some instruction on what to CLICK would be helpful if that's what's needed.

Yes NBN is the National Broadband Network here in the Oztrailia, my area has been one of the last to get it and my individual connection at an even later stage. Using the old ADSL2 connection over the old copper wire network my 4.4Gb PDF took sometimes 30 hours to upload if the connection did not break. Now with NBN it takes just 30 minutes. OMG :mrgreen:

OLD video found on JSF.mil may help with understanding the complexity of mission made easy by sensor fusion avionics.
