Litening III targeting pods supplied by Ultra Electronics to the RAF have successfully completed their first year of service in Iraq. Mounted on Tornado GR4 combat aircraft, the pods are fitted with a ROVER III-compatible video datalink supplied by Ultra, which also manufactured Litening III under license from Rafael. The pods have proved to be a very capable asset in Iraq, the company said, providing extremely high quality video imagery described by aircrew as the “best they have ever seen.”
