The Spanish air force has selected the Rafael Litening targeting pod for its fleet of Boeing F/A-18s. The $38 million deal was agreed after Israeli company Rafael beat the USA's Lockheed Martin's Sniper, Raytheon's ATF and France's Thomson-CSF Damocles Systems to the contract.

Rafael has teamed with Spanish company Tecnovit, which will manufacture parts of the Litening targeting pod and integrate it on the F/A-18s.
