Thailand, Romania Select Sniper Advanced Targeting Pod for F-16 Fleets

The Romanian Air Force and Royal Thai Air Force recently selected Lockheed Martin’s Sniper Advanced Targeting Pod for their F-16 fleets.
Lockheed Martin will integrate and field Sniper ATPs on existing RoAF and RTAF aircraft and provide initial sustainment support. Pod deliveries began in early 2015 to meet operational need requirements.
Sniper ATP will provide the RoAF and the RTAF with precision targeting capability to locate targets using high-resolution imagery. It detects, identifies, automatically tracks and laser-designates small tactical targets at long ranges.
Sniper ATP’s interoperability also enables coalition air forces to use the pod across multiple platforms, including U.S. Air Force and multinational F-15, F-16, F-18, A-10, B-1 and B-52 aircraft.
