The US Air Force is taking a bold leap forward by joining forces with the defense juggernaut Northrop Grumman to bring a new edge to the skies—the LITENING Large Aperture (LA) targeting pod.

This collaboration, announced by Northrop Grumman last Tuesday, February 13, isn’t just an upgrade; it’s a revolution in how we light up the night and target what lurks in the shadows.

They’re tying down cutting-edge electro-optical and infrared tech to the precision demands of modern warfare.
