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.

"TALIOS is the first optronic targeting pod to cover the entire decision chain, from intelligence gathering through to neutralization," the company said in an announcement. "With the latest-generation high-resolution infrared and electro-optical sensors, line-of-sight stabilization, and high performance image processing, its capabilities range from deep strike with precision-guided munition, to air-to-air target identification and close air support, both during the day and at night."

The TALIOS pod is to be used on French Air Force and Navy Rafales and is a major part of a development program for the fighters.

The TALIOS pod development and Rafale integration programs run in parallel. Adjustment and performance measurement tests will continue throughout next year.
