$112.3M for 38 ATFLIR Pods, Plus Spares
DID has covered the ATFLIR’s success in theater over Iraq, and how it has changed the roles of the F/A-18 aircraft fitted with it. Advanced Targeting Forward Looking Infrared (ATFLIR) combines three pods into one: a targeting FLIR, a laser spot tracker, and a navigation FLIR. It also sharply improves performance and reliability over existing pods.
The US Navy has recently issued a pair of ATFLIR-related orders for its F/A-18 fleet. Both pertain to contract N00019-06-C-0310, and together they total $112.3 million…
