UTC to provide EO/IR Recce Pods for Turkish AF F-16

UTC Aerospace Systems to provide EO/IR reconnaissance pods for Turkish Air Force F-16 combat aircraft.


The TARP contract, awarded by Aselsan Elektronic Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S. on behalf of the Turkish Air Force, calls for UTC Aerospace Systems to supply four DB-110 electro-optic/infra-red (EO/IR) reconnaissance pods for the Turkish Air Force F-16 aircraft, three fixed/transportable Imagery Exploitation Systems, and training and logistics support.

The DB-110 digital, real-time, tactical reconnaissance system captures images day and night using electro-optical/infrared sensor technology. Images can be transmitted in real time to analysts on the ground, as well as viewed on the cockpit video display, enabling pilots to verify targets and re-task based on opportunities revealed during the mission.
