The systems majorly targeting pods which were the sign of luxury once have become basic equipment for air forces serving countries with deep pockets. Targeting pods helps to detect, identify, laser-designate, and automatically track small tactical targets at long distance or range along with providing superior air-to-air and air-to-ground capability. Furthermore, the targeting pods also helps in supporting the use of GPS and laser-guided weapons against moving targets and have been able to use across multinational and typhoon aircrafts. The targeting pods displays an infrared image of the target to aircrew as it contains a high-resolution forward-looking infrared (FLIR) sensor with a wide search capability field.

The Governments across the globe are investing and upgrading their capabilities through placing contracts, enabling to respond to need of the war fighters such as reliability rates and sniper’s availability. Additionally, ongoing investments in new capabilities such as short-wave infrared to improve targeting capability in low and haze light, and two-color LST which supports tracking of combat lasers and eye-safe will uplift the market growth over the next decade. Moreover, the development of a two-way data-link configuration is estimated to double the targeting pods capability for providing surveillance, intelligence, and reconnaissance (ISR) solution to end users. Targeting pod’s features such as highly accurate Geo-location Coordinates provision, laser pointing capability, laser spot tracker, and target designator have attributed towards the significant sales over the last few years.
