Description: The LITENING II is an improved version of the proven LITENING pod realized in cooperation between Rafael and Northrop-Grumman. The LITENING II incorporates a 256x256 resolution third generation FLIR, a CCD-TV, Inertial Navigation System (INS), laser marker, laser designator, and laser spot tracker/rangefinder. LITENING II also features software upgrades compared with basic LITENING pod developed by Rafael alone.
