Lockheed Martin wins $8.8M contract for sniper targeting pods

Contract includes foreign military sales

Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control has won an $8.8 million contract with the Air Force to provide the Royal Saudi Air Force with sniper advanced targeting pods.

The targeting pods fulfill precision strike mission requirements, provide long-range target detection and identification and continuous surveillance for missions, including close air support of ground forces, Lockheed Martin said on their website.

Under the contract, Lockheed will provide compact multiband data link software and firmware configuration support on the Saudi Air Force’s F-15SA aircraft.

The company will also provide resources required for the management, fabrication, repair, support, testing and shipping of its non-developmental item sniper advanced targeting pod system, the Defense Department said in a release.

Work will be performed in Orlando, Fla., and is expected to be completed by November 2016.

This is the second contract of its kind in six months; Lockheed Martin in June won a $21.4 million contract to provide targeting pods to Saudi Arabia.
