Kuwaiti Air Force’s Eurofighter Typhoon swing-role fighters are to be equipped with Lockheed Martin Sniper Advanced Targeting Pods (ATP).
A contract to this effect signed between Lockheed Martin and Eurofighter partner company Leonardo Aircraft, includes 18 pods, integration and logistics support for the Kuwait Air Force's Eurofighter Typhoon. The Eurofighter Typhoon is the ninth aircraft platform to be equipped with Sniper ATP, joining variants of the F-15, F-16, F-18, A-10, B-1, B-52, F-2 and Harrier.
"This contract marks the start of a successful relationship with the Eurofighter consortium to provide critical targeting capability worldwide," said Ken Fuhr, fixed-wing program director at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control.
"As a new Sniper ATP user, the Kuwait Air Force will see significant targeting benefits, including high-resolution imagery, advanced targeting modes, and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities."
Pod deliveries will begin in 2017 to support integration efforts.
Sniper ATP 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.
