21st May 2020 - 15:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Israeli company Rafael Advanced Defense Systems announced on 21 May a new order for its fifth-generation Litening multispectral airborne targeting pods and RecceLite airborne EO systems.

Litening and RecceLite will be installed on attack aircraft operated by an unnamed air force.

Litening equips a total of 25 aircraft types in service with 27 air forces worldwide, delivering real-time FLIR, short-wave IR and day HD colour camera imagery. The pod allows the operation of ‘all types of air-to-surface smart weaponry’, according to Rafael, such as laser-guided, GPS-guided and EO/IR imaging-guided munition.

The RecceLite ISR system has been delivered to 13 customers worldwide on multiple aircraft types.
