The Royal Bahraini Air Force continues to order Sniper ATPs with this most recent 19 pod delivery order for the F-16 Block 70 platform. The second order was placed by Taiwan in the United States for 18 pods to be implemented on the mid-life upgraded (MLU) F-16 platform.
"Sniper ATP continues to be a must-have product on platforms worldwide for its superior performance and reliability," said Michael Williamson, vice president of Sensors & Global Sustainment at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. "We continue to focus on delivering game-changing sensor capabilities to our customers around the globe."
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.
Sniper ATP has been integrated across multiple platforms, including US Air Force and multinational F-2, F-15, F-16, F-18, A-10, B-1, B-52, Harrier and Typhoon aircraft.
