Elbit to Provide Apache Block III Mission Processor Upgrade
Boeing has awarded Elbit Systems of America a five-year $17.5 million contract to redesign and upgrade the AH-64D mission processor for the U.S. Army fleet of Apache Block III helicopters.
The Block III Mission Processor provides an open-system computing architecture to allow the integration of emerging next generation technologies.
“The refresh and upgrade program will ensure that the Apache takes advantage of the latest processing technology available. We are pleased to be a part of this important program and look forward to working closely with both Boeing and the U.S. Army to provide continued technological dominance to the warfighter,” said Raanan Horowitz, CEO and president of Elbit Systems of America.
