Sniper Advanced Targeting Pods (shown) provide precision engagement through high-resolution, midwave forward-looking IR and TV sensors, which operate in conjunction with a dual-mode laser, permitting eye-safe operation and precise geolocation in urban environments.

Lockheed Martin signed a contract to deliver Sniper Advanced Targeting Pods (ATPs) and LANTIRN Enhanced Resolution (ER) navigation pods to equip Turkish Air Force F-16 Block 40 and Block 50 Peace Onyx aircraft. Packaged in a single lightweight pod, the Sniper ATP provides critical long-range, positive identification of both moving and stationary air and ground targets. LANTIRN ER navigation pods feature terrain-following radar, a third-generation midwave FLIR, enhanced image signal processing, and increased image quality. The LANTIRN ER navigation pod allows aircrews to operate worldwide, in daylight or darkness, at mission altitudes from sea level to 40,000 ft.
