Paper Abstract

New generation of tactical reconnaissance pod for high performance aircraft. The pod contains a high resolution multi-spectral sensor suite for day/night missions, digital solid state recorder and optional data link. The modular structure of the pod is based on the Litening targeting pod and uses the same interface to the aircraft, saving cost for new system integration and certification. The RecceLite pod has been integrated to the Spanish Airforce EF-18 aircraft and flight tested to verify interfaces and performance in a real military operational environment. First results have been flown with an infrared sensor only and final test with the final configuration of sensors and image processing electronics.
