Global security and aerospace company Lockheed Martin recently received a $961 million, five-year Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity contract from the U.S. Air Force for the maintenance of and upgrades to 683 Sniper Advanced Targeting Pods (ATP).

The contract includes logistics, spares, software and sensor enhancement.

U.S. Air Force program manager Nicole Visosky expressed pride in working with Lockheed Martin, which was reciprocated by Paul Lemmo, a Lockheed Martin vice president.

In addition to the U.S. Air Force, Sniper ATP is used by 25 international customers. It is designed to detect, identify, track and laser-designate small tactical targets at long ranges. It also supports the use of all laser- and GPS-guided weapons against multiple fixed and moving targets. 

It is compatible with multiple platforms, including multinational F-2, F-15, F-16, F-18, A-10, B-1, B-52 and Typhoon aircraft.
