What are the "pods" right behind the engines, like extended exhausts?

Likely to suppress noises similar to a muffler, as NASA uses this jet to carry high-value instruments and passengers (e.g., astronauts). Interesting to see how close the SAR radar pod is to the ground.
ps. Did not see Deino's comment when this message was posted.
