ITT (NYSE: ITT) picked up a deal from the U.S. Air National Guard to integrate an all-weather targeting pod in its F-16 fighter aircraft.
The new Thunder Radar Targeting Pod will help pilots in tough weather conditions.
According to the firm, “the system provides advanced Synthetic Aperture Radar capability to all models of the F-16, magnifying targets on the ground and providing a clear picture of threats to allied forces. The pod’s aircraft interface is the same as that of the electro-optical (EO) pods currently in use, which permits efficient installation and transfer between aircraft as mission requirements dictate.”
The deal is worth $4.3 million.
“With its all-weather capability and interchangeability, this solution will provide our forces with enhanced technology and flexibility to perform their critical missions, ” said Joe Ruffolo, vice president of ITT’s integrated electronic warfare systems business area.
