ASELPOD Advanced Targeting Pod Electro-Optical Reconnaissance, Surveillance and Targeting System

ASELPOD is a high performance electro-optical reconnaissance, surveillance and targeting system designed specifically for fighter aircrafts. ASELPOD is designed as the new generation targeting pod for fighter aircrafts.

ASELPOD is a multi-sensor targeting pod consisting of:

  • High Resolution, 3rd generation FLIR
  • Laser Range Finder / Target Designator
  • Laser Spot Tracker
  • Laser Pointer
  • Advanced Video Tracking (Simultaneously on IR/Day Video)
  • IR/Day Video & Mission History Recording
  • Advanced Image Processing
  • Providing Highly Accurate Geo-Location Coordinates
  • Growth Potential for Mission Requirements

With a modular mechanical design, ASELPOD comprises high density capabilities.

ASELPOD designed to fit fighter jets such as F-16's and F-4's and can be adapted to various air platforms.
