announced a $60 million contract with AgustaWestland
for the Modernized Target Acquisition Designation Sight/Pilot Night Vision Sensor (M-TADS/PNVS) system on the U.K.’s fleet of Apache AH Mk-1 aircraft.
Under the contract Lockheed will also provide repairs and other support for the Apaches. The upgrades are expected to be complete by March 2019.
The system is designed to increase situational awareness during adverse weather conditions, Lockheed said.
“Working with AgustaWestland, we developed an M-TADS/PNVS product support strategy designed to optimize system readiness and mission effectiveness,” said Mike Taylor, Apache international programs director at Lockheed Martin.
