Lockheed Martin Wins Apache Sensor Contract
The U.S. Army has signed a $19-million follow-on production contract with Lockheed Martin for VNsight sensors for use with four Boeing AH-64D Apache battalions. The visible/near infrared sensor allows pilots to acquire targets in low-light-level conditions. VNSight's system is merged with the modernized target acquisition designation sight/pilot night vision sensor system (M-TADS/PNVS) also known as Arrowhead, currently installed on the Apaches.
