Targeting pods are target designation tools used by ground-attack aircraft for identifying targets and guiding precision guided munitions (PGM) such as laser-guided bombs to those targets. The first targeting pods were developed in conjunction with the earliest generation of PGMs in the mid 1960s.
Famous quotes containing the word pods:
“He would gladly have filled himself with the pods that the pigs were eating; and no one gave him anything.”
—Bible: New Testament, Luke 15:16.
