“Expedited delivery will enable the Royal Netherlands Air Force to rapidly deploy Sniper ATP to support current mission requirements,” said Rich Lovette, director of Sniper international programs at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. “Maintaining a high availability rate through our award-winning sustainment program will also ensure the Sniper ATPs remain operational for warfighters.”

Under this contract, Lockheed Martin will provide sustainment support for the Royal Netherlands Air Force through a Performance-Based Logistics program. Depot repairs will be performed at the Warner Robins Air Logistics Complex through Lockheed Martin’s partnership with the U.S. Government.  

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 is interoperable across multiple platforms, including U.S. Air Force and multinational F-2, F-15, F-16, F-18, A-10, B-1 and B-52 aircraft.
