US: The US Army has awarded Lockheed Martin a USD 80.6 million production contract for the Modernised Target Acquisition Designation Sight/Pilot Night Vision Sensor (M-TADS/PNVS) on the AH-64 Apache helicopter. The contract includes production of eight targeting and pilotage systems and spares for the US Army and nine systems for the Indonesian Army. Indonesia is the 13th international customer to purchase the M-TADS/PNVS system. “The M-TADS/PNVS system is helping save lives of our US and allied troops by giving Apache pilots the ability to engage targets accurately, and by improving situational awareness,” said Matt Hoffman, M-TADS/PNVS programme Director at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control.
Fielded in 2005, M-TADS/PNVS provides Apache pilots with long-range, precision engagement and pilotage capabilities for safe flight during day, night and adverse weather missions.
