Lockheed Martin to supply sniper advanced targeting pod to QEAF

The Qatar Emiri Air Force (QEAF) has chosen Lockheed Martin’s Sniper Advanced Targeting Pod (ATP) for its Rafale aircraft.

Lockheed Martin will provide the QEAF with pods, spares and deployment support for the Rafale – the 10thplatform to fly with Sniper ATP. Integration efforts are ongoing, with flight tests currently in progress.

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.

Kenen Nelson, Director of Fixed Wing programs at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control, said: “Platform expansion on the Rafale aircraft is a testament to Sniper ATP’s proven performance, ease of integration and open architecture. We continuously invest to ensure that Sniper ATP is the most capable targeting pod available for our allies worldwide.”
