Goodrich's DB-110 is designed for the intelligence gathering, surveillance and reconnaissance of the area of interest. It can capture images of the target area and transmit them through the data link to the ground stations in real time.
It is designed to meet the requirements of a reconnaissance pod capable of taking pictures of the target from long distances as well as from very close .Pictures taken by the pod can also be viewed by the pilot of the fighter jet. It is considered as the most advanced reconnaissance pod for the F-16 Fighting Falcon.
In electro-optical its long range optics provides focal lengths of 110 inches and in infrared it provides focal length of 55 inches.
Image displayed is taken during the day time from distance of 27.8 - 33.3 kilometers from left to right side and one can still identify the people from such a long range.
In electro-optical its short range optics provides focal lengths of 16 inches and in infrared it provides focal length of 14 inches. Both short and long range optics can be rotated to cover the 180o.
Image displayed is taken during the day time from distance of 20.3 – 22.2 kilometers from left to right side. Clarity of the image is such that one can easily recognize the vehicles and people from such a long range.
