Rafael to Provide Litening 5, RecceLite Electro-Optical Pods to Mystery Customer

Israeli firm Rafael has won a contract to supply 5th generation Litening and RecceLite airborne electro-optical systems to a mystery customer.

The Litening 5 multi-spectral airborne targeting pod delivers real-time, forward-looking infrared (FLIR+SWIR) and day HD color camera imagery. Its high-resolution sensors and effective EO/IR design ensure reliable operation at significant stand-off ranges. Litening 5 allows the operation of all types of air-to-surface smart weaponry, such as laser-guided, GPS-guided and EO/IR imaging-guided munition, Rafael said in a release Thursday.

With the RecceLite ISR system, the attack aircraft will be able to perform target search, using advanced tools and other smart algorithms at the interpretation ground station, for efficient detection, tracking and sensor-to-shooter closure. Using its advanced ISR, image processing, and artificial intelligence, the system achieves optimal data-exploitation at the ground station, of intelligence data relayed in real-time and mission execution in near-real-time.
