Defeating enemy armored vehicles
The TOW Improved Target Acquisition System, also called ITAS, increases target recognition and engagement ranges, fires all versions of the TOW® missile and can accommodate future missile upgrades. In ITAS, Raytheon offers improved battlefield performance and life-saving technology for first-to-fight light infantry forces.
The ITAS is equipped with second-generation Forward-Looking Infrared, or FLIR, that uses standard advanced Dewar assembly technology, an eyesafe laser rangefinder and other digital components.
The TOW ITAS is highly mobile and can be used in darkness or light and in adverse weather conditions. The added capabilities let early-entry forces destroy advanced threat armor at greater standoff ranges in the main battle area.
Increased standoff range
The ITAS features an automatic boresighting capability, aided target tracking and traversing unit modifications among other upgrades. These features ensure crew survivability through increased standoff ranges and improved battlefield performance.
