M41 Improved Target Acquisition System

The Improved Target Acquisition System (ITAS) is the successor of the M220 TOW missile launcher. It provides long-range sensor and anti-armor/precision assault fire capabilities, effectively detecting and engaging targets at long range with Tube-Launched, Optically Tracked, Wireless-Guided (TOW) Missiles; or directing the employment of other weapon systems to destroy those targets. ITAS is a multipurpose weapon system, used as a reconnaissance, surveillance and target acquisition sensor. The ITAS launcher can be installed on ground vehicles (HMMWV) or on a tripod.
