Sniper Advanced Targeting Pods from Lockheed Martin are being supplied to the Royal Netherlands Air Force.
ORLANDO, Fla -- The Royal Netherlands Air Force is to equip its fleet of F-16 aircraft with Sniper advanced targeting pods from Lockheed Martin. A contract for 29 of the multi-mission systems was issued through the Netherlands Defense Materiel Organization and includes support equipment, training and sustainment. "Expedited delivery will enable the Royal Netherlands Air Force to rapidly deploy Sniper ATP to support current mission requirements," said Rich Lovette, director of Sniper international programs at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. "Maintaining a high availability rate through our award-winning sustainment program will also ensure the Sniper ATPs remain operational for warfighters."
