The U.S. Air Force has chosen Northrop Grumman Corporation's RainDrop as its near-term standard precise positioning tool to meet warfighters'
time-sensitive targeting requirements and to provide better capability from commander-in-chief to unit level operations.
RainDrop is the first commercial-off-the-shelf, operator-friendly, PC-based, stereo imagery exploitation tool for precise coordinate extraction. Among
its capabilities, RainDrop lets operators "view" target areas with three-dimensional imagery and produces weapon-planning target coordinates that
can guide precision-guided munitions.
