Sniper Pod

Current as of February 1, 2023.

Sniper Pods provide improved long range target detection/identification and continuous stabilized surveillance for all missions.

The Sniper Pod enables aircrew to detect and identify a multitude of targets ranging from maritime vessels, buildings, and vehicles, to potential enemy personnel on the ground while outside jet noise ranges. Superior imagery, a video datalink, and J-series-weapons-quality coordinates provided by the Sniper Pod enable rapid target decisions and keep aircrew out of threat ranges. 

High resolution imagery for non-traditional intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (NTISR) enables the Sniper Pod to play a major role in Air Force operations in all theaters, providing top cover for ground forces, as well as increasing the safety of civilian populations.

The Sniper Pod is combat proven on U.S. Air Force and international F-15E, F-16 (all blocks), B-1, B-52, A-10C, Harrier GR7/9 and CF-18 aircraft. The pod’s plug-and-play capability facilitates moving the pod across platforms without changing software. 

Sniper Pods include a high definition mid-wave forward looking infrared (FLIR), dual-mode laser, HDTV, laser spot tracker, laser marker, video data link, and a digital data recorder. Advanced image processing algorithms, combined with rock steady stabilization techniques, provide cutting-edge performance.
