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.

Northrop Grum­man is a lead­ing glob­al secu­ri­ty com­pa­ny pro­vid­ing inno­v­a­tive sys­tems, prod­ucts and solu­tions in aero­space, elec­tron­ics, infor­ma­tion sys­tems, and tech­ni­cal ser­vices to gov­ern­ment and com­mer­cial cus­tomers world­wide.
