I highly doubt that Juniper would be so foolish.

(They're going to want to make closed-source customizations to their product,
including detection engine customization, and doing so using snort as a codebase
would be legally troublesome due to licensing.)

I suspect that the juniper is either home-grown, or purchased from someone else.
In this case, it's almost certainly based on the Netscreen IPS, since juniper
bought netscreen.

The netscreen IPS uses a mixture of software and a custom hardware ASIC to do
it's operations, so it's little like snort.
