ORLANDO, FL, September 26, 2007 — Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] has received a contract from the U.S. Air Force (USAF) for 45 additional Sniper Advanced Targeting Pods (ATP). The follow-on order will be funded by a defense emergency supplemental bill; contract terms have not been finalized.

Sniper pods are currently flying on the USAF’s F-15E, F-16 blocks 30/40/50 and A-10, in addition to international F-18 and Harrier platforms. Sniper ATP’s common software/hardware interface design enables the USAF to “plug & play” Sniper across platforms providing a single common hardware/software configuration across the fleet.
