ISRAEL. RAFAEL Advanced Defense Systems announced that it has been awarded a contract to supply 5th generation Litening and RecceLite airborne electro-optical systems for installation on a combat platform of an undisclosed air force.
Litening 5 is designed to deliver real-time, forward-looking infrared (FLIR+SWIR) and day HD color camera imagery. Its EO/IR sensor design is intended to ensure reliable operation at stand-off ranges. Litening 5 is designed to allow the operation of all types of air-to-surface smart weaponry, such as laser-guided, GPS-guided and EO/IR imaging-guided munition.
With the RecceLite ISR system, the attack aircraft will be able to perform target search, using tools and other smart algorithms at the interpretation ground station, for detection, tracking, and sensor-to-shooter closure. Using ISR, image processing, and artificial intelligence, the system aims to achieve optimal data-exploitation at the ground station.
