nfrared search and track systems are designed to help track enemy aircraft
But the systems could have the side-effect of assisting investigations into UFOs
Air Force jets and Navy Super Hornet planes are due to get the sensors soon
New trackers on U.S. fighter jets could make it easier for them to detect UFOs, an aviation expert has said.
The infrared search and track systems (IRSTs) are designed to hunt down enemy planes - but could also have the side-effect of helping pilots to investigate unexplained objects.
Military writer Tyler Rogoway said the technology has existed for decades but is now 'exponentially more capable' and could be a 'revolutionary' step in gathering UFO data.
