RecceLite at forefront of fight against modern geurrilla warfare

In recent times, wars have featured good military systems, not only weapons, and proved they are essential to the most common type of battle fought these days.

In most wars today, armies fight organisations that are inferior in equipment but know the combat terrain.

Israel has gained vast experience in fighting guerrilla groups and its defence industries have adapted some systems developed for “old-fashioned” wars to new operational requirements.

When the first Rafael RecceLite systems were taken to Afghanistan by coalition air forces, they were unsure of its suitability. The commanders decided to deploy the system because they already had it in their bases.

The Rafael real-time intelligence and reconnaissance (RecceLite) system enables the coalition forces in Afghanistan to detect ambushes and other threats such as improvised explosive devices (IEDs) in almost real time by fast comparison of captured images.  

Units from Germany and the Netherlands in the international security assistance force were the first to use the Rafael system but now other units also use it. Rafael would not identify these units.

The RecceLite is a self-contained, self-cooled, multi-sensor tactical reconnaissance system.

RecceLite simultaneously collects infra-red (IR), visual and near IR digital images of large areas. Images and data are recorded on a solid-state recorder and transmitted to the ground exploitation station via the RecceLite data link.

The RecceLite pod is a derivative of Rafael’s Litening navigation and targeting pod, which is used by the Israeli air force among others.

The new gimbaled version can be controlled from the ground to focus on “areas of interest”. In the case of a data-link failure, the system will send the images to the ground station immediately after the connection is re-established.
