Thales optronic targeting pod integrated, tested on Rafale fighter

TALIOS is the first optronic pod to cover the entire critical decision chain from intelligence gathering to weapon delivery.

Capabilities range from deep strike with long-range missiles and bombs to air-to-air target identification and close air support, and include the rapidly emerging requirement of Non-Traditional Information, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (NTISR).

Thales' new-generation TALIOS laser targeting pod has successfully completed a more than two-hour first flight on a Rafale fighter.

The prototype targeting long-range identification optronic system collected high-quality images taken using the "day" channel, and offered remarkable performances in pointing and telemetry, Thales said.

  • Latest generation of high-resolution sensors and high-precision line-of-sight stabilization
  • Wide-angle vision providing critical contextual information and making the pod a key component of the pilot’s visual environment throughout the mission.
  • Open architecture and a high level of functional integration
