Sniper is the most widely deployed targeting system for fixed-wing aircraft in use by the U.S. Air Force and is also the targeting system of choice for more than 16 international air forces. In addition to fulfilling precision strike mission requirements, Sniper is changing the way armed forces operate in theater with new capabilities to meet the challenges of non-traditional intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance.
Providing mission-critical capabilities for aircrew survivability and mission success, Sniper specializes in long-range target detection/identification and continuous surveillance for all missions, including close air support of ground forces. Superior imagery, a video datalink, and J-series weapons-quality coordinates enhance the warfighter’s ability to rapidly detect and analyze air and ground targets while keeping aircrews out of threat ranges.
An electro-optical targeting system in a single, lightweight pod, Sniper is designed for current and future aircraft. It is currently operational on the F-15, F-16, F-18, B-1, B-52 and A-10.
