Lockheed Martin Receives Extension for Apache Night Vision Upgrades
Lockheed Martin signed two new production contracts worth $161.7 million to continue upgrades of the night vision sensors on U.S. Army Apache attack helicopters.
Under the contracts Lockheed will provide 482 Modern Day Sensor Assembly (M-DSA) Modernized Laser Rangefinder Designator (M-LRFD) kits and spares, as upgrades for the Modernized Target Acquisition Designation/Pilot Night Vision Sensor (M-TADS/PNVS).
“M-DSA M-LRFD kits reduce ongoing obsolescence while significantly increasing system performance,” said Matt Hoffman, director of M-TADS/PNVS programs at Lockheed Martin.
The first of the 92 M-DSA M-LRFD kits and spares ordered by the U.S. Army in 2012 are on schedule for delivery in early 2013. More
