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
