L3Harris Technologies Introduces Venom™ Adversary Air Mission Software Suite


Sep 17, 2019


  • Offers flexibility to easily integrate/upgrade to different missions and adversary platforms
  • Reduces integration costs by allowing hardware changes with minimal software updates
  • Brings powerful fifth-generation pilot vehicle interface to third-generation aircraft

L3Harris Technologies (NYSE:LHX) is debuting its innovative and cost-effective adversary air mission software suite, Venom™, onboard Tactical Air Support Inc.’s F-5AT Adversary Aircraft at the Air Force Association’s Air, Space & Cyber Conference in National Harbor, Maryland, September 16-18. Venom will be available for demonstration in the Tactical Air Support, Inc. booth (Booth #100).

Venom integrates the latest air-to-air capabilities using commercial off-the-shelf components, providing pilots’ desired look, feel and operation in the cockpit. The suite enables third-generation platforms to operate as a fifth-generation platform, and more realistically emulate modern adversaries.

The Venom suite continues L3Harris’ work in adversary mission systems by integrating a high-resolution tactical situation display, presenting radar and datalink track information, threats, system status and weapons engagement information with the Garmin® G3000™ Integrated Flight Deck touch controller and bezel key interfaces. This provides pilots an intuitive, cutting-edge capability for performing adversary training missions. Scaleable, reconfigurable and adaptable, Venom enables platforms to maintain relevance by easily and affordably incorporating new or desired adversary capabilities.

“We are very excited about the opportunity to work with the Tactial Air Support F-5AT team to deliver an adversary platform solution that includes our integrated Venom mission software suite,” said David Cotham, General Manager, L3Harris ForceX. “We worked together extensively to refine the integration of Venom into the cockpit, including into the Garmin cockpit avionics, resulting in a synergistic team relationship that will benefit blue force training.”
