Northrop Grumman to provide Royal Danish Air Force with LITENING G4 targeting systems

The Danish Ministry of Defence has selected Northrop Grumman’s LITENING G4 targeting system for its F-16 fighter aircraft.

Under the terms of the contract with the Danish Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organization, Northrop Grumman will supply LITENING G4 pods, data links, spares, support equipment, training and associated logistics support to the Royal Danish Air Force. Deliveries will begin in August 2013.

“This award, following a rigorous competitive selection process, is yet another vote of confidence from the international aviation community in the advanced technology of the LITENING G4 targeting system,” said Jim Mocarski, vice president of Northrop Grumman’s electro-optical/infrared business unit.

With this contract award, Denmark joins the United States, Australia, the Netherlands, Finland, Italy, Portugal, Spain and Israel as users of the Northrop Grumman LITENING family of targeting pods.

The LITENING G4 Advanced Targeting Pod delivers the latest advancements in sensor, laser imaging and data link technology. The G4’s technologies include true 1Kx1K forward-looking infrared and charge-coupled device sensors, short wave infrared laser imaging sensor, color symbology, tracker improvements and enhanced zoom. These advancements deliver more accurate target identification and location at longer ranges than previous generations of LITENING targeting pod systems while reducing pilot workload.
