RecceLite Inspects Dutch Dikes

Over the weekend, the Royal Netherlands Air Force (RNLAF) inspected dikes in the Dutch province of Limburg with an F-16 equipped with a RecceLite pod.

The mission was requested by the local water authority and the Netherlands Ministry of Safety and Justice because the level of the Maas (Meuse) river is high due to the melting of the abnormally large amounts of snow that fell on Europe a couple of weeks ago. The water authority is using the imagery to map how the dikes withstood the high water.

In Afghanistan, RNLAF F-16s equipped with RecceLite have been used to search for improvised explosive devices.
