Lockheed Martin has signed a $118 million foreign military sales contract to deliver Sniper Advanced Targeting Pods (ATP) and LANTIRN Enhanced Resolution (ER) navigation pods to the Turkish Air Force’s F-16 Block 40 and Block 50 Peace Onyx aircraft. The Sniper ATP will provide enhanced target detection and identification capability, providing long-range, positive identification of both moving and stationary air and ground targets, according to the company. It also possesses a video downlink equipped with the Rover ground receiver to relay high-resolution streaming video to forward-deployed forces for non-traditional intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance and rapid target coordination. LANTIRN ER navigation pod includes a terrain-following radar, a mid-wave FLIR, enhanced image signal processing and increased image quality.
