EL/M-20600 RTP can be used in wartime/peacetime surveillance & reconnaisance operations to get realtime picture of enemy territory from stand-off distance coverign huge swathes of area...
Litening pod is used for target designation purposes..
Both are for same purpose using different technologies - IR & EM.
RTP is equipped to deal with the complete kill sequence.
Similarly Litening can do the same using IR technology. Of course both complement each other -- think of sensor fusion and how you can combine the individual benefits of IR and Radar technologies to knockout their individual disadvantages.
OOopss.... my answer was about EL/M 2060P (on MKI's) & Litening.. I mis-read the original post by Sean which refers to El/M20600 (for Jags)
