SAR Integration from Rafael

SAR Integration from Rafael 13 June, 2019

Rafael has signed a new collaboration with Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI). Within this scope, the company will carry out synthetic aperture radar integration studies.

One of Rafael's most advanced targeting pods, the Litening 5 and Reccelite XR pods, will feature synthetic aperture radar (SAR) capabilities. The Litening 5 is equipped with wide-span mid-wave infrared and short-wave infrared sensors and includes a laser designator. Reccelite XR weighs 250 kilograms. The system, which has RGB, NIR and mid-wave infrared imagers, provides instant image transfer thanks to C-band and Ku-band communication systems. The systems will also achieve autonomous operating capability after SAR integration.
