SEOUL, South Korea - Lockheed Martin’s Sniper Advanced Targeting Pod (ATP) successfully completed its fit check on the FA-50 platform, marking a significant step in the pod’s aircraft integration. The FA-50 is a light combat aircraft manufactured by Korea Aerospace Industries, Ltd., in partnership with Lockheed Martin.

Since KAI awarded Lockheed Martin a contract to integrate Sniper ATP on its FA-50 platform, Sniper ATP has completed several key milestones. The fit check verified the engineering, physical connections and interfaces, as well as validated upload and download procedures of the pod.

Sniper will continue to go through various tests that will verify areas like the electromagnetic interference, laser mask zone and aircraft transfer alignment parameters, all concluding with a flight test.

Lockheed Martin is on track to complete integration of Sniper ATP on the FA-50 by August 2020 and achieve full certification by the end of 2020.

SEOUL -- South Korea is considering the acquisition of a nuclear-powered submarine. A task force is studying this proposal. A nuclear-powered submarine would help to enhance South Korea's deterrent capability.

South Korea pushed to build such submarines in 2003. Seoul suspended the project about a year later after it was disclosed in a media report. Presently, South Korea has not made a final decision on whether or not to procure a nuclear-powered submarine. Seoul says it is collecting information regarding this matter.

One possible option for South Korea is to develop its 3,000-ton Chang Bo Go-III submarine as a nuclear-powered boat.
