LITENING's forward-looking infrared, charged-coupled device, laser imaging sensors, advanced image processing and digital video output provide superior imagery, allowing aircrews to identify and engage targets under a wide range of battlefield conditions.

Northrop Grumman has been awarded a $173 million performance-based logistics contract to provide support and sustainment services for the LITENING advanced targeting system.

Under the five-year agreement, Northrop Grumman will provide logistics support, technical support to the field, aircrew and maintenance training, depot repairs and other associated services. Northrop Grumman will support the LITENING targeting systems operated by the Air Combat Command, Air Force Reserves, Air National Guard, Marine Corps and Marine Corps Reserves. Northrop Grumman will also provide support services to the Italian and Spanish navies.

"This award continues our 15-year partnership with the Department of Defense in supporting the warfighters who rely on the LITENING system," said Jim Mocarski, vice president of airborne tactical sensors at Northrop Grumman Electronic Systems. "Through this partnership, LITENING has achieved greater than 97 percent availability and more than 650,000 combat flight hours, so warfighters know it will be ready for any mission."

LITENING's forward-looking infrared, charged-coupled device, laser imaging sensors, advanced image processing and digital video output provide superior imagery, allowing aircrews to identify and engage targets under a wide range of battlefield conditions. LITENING has been integrated on a wide variety of Coalition aircraft.

Novel Hollow-Core Optical Fiber to Enable High-Power Military Sensors
Washington DC (SPX) Jul 19, 2013
The intensity of light that propagates through glass optical fiber is fundamentally limited by the glass itself. A novel fiber design using a hollow, air-filled core removes this limitation and dramatically improves performance by forcing light to travel through channels of air, instead of the glass around it. DARPA's unique spider-web-like, hollow-core fiber, design is the first to demons ... read more
