Lockheed to support Sniper, LANTIRN pods
The US Air Force has awarded Lockheed Martin an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract to provide sustainment support for Sniper Advanced Targeting Pods (ATP) and LANTIRN navigation pods, the company announced on 20 June. The five-year contract is worth up to $200 million.
The contract will see the company support foreign military sales customers for the pods with repairs and returns, on-call technical support, depot activities and other sustainment efforts.
The Sniper ATP provides air-to-ground and air-to-air targeting and non-traditional intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities for aircraft including the F-15, F-16, F-18, B-1, B-52, A-10 and F-2.
LANTIRN navigation pods provide low-level navigation with terrain-following radar on international F-15 and F-16 aircraft.
