Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control received a delivery order from the U.S. Air Force (USAF) to provide Sniper advanced targeting pods to the Kuwait Air Force for its Boeing F/A-18C/D Hornet fighter jets.

The order was added under Lockheed Martin’s existing foreign military sales indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract and includes 14 airborne pods, spares, support equipment and integration. Pod deliveries will begin in 2018.

Sniper pod detects, identifies, automatically tracks and laser-designates small tactical targets at long ranges. It also supports employment of all laser- and GPS-guided weapons against multiple fixed and moving targets.
