Lockheed Martin said it installed the first two Arrowhead systems on Royal Netherlands Air Force (RNLAF) AH-64D Apaches, marking the first time it installed the Modernized Target Acquisition Designation Sight/Pilot Night Vision Sensor (M-TADS/PNVS) system utilizing the host nation’s equipment and personnel. "The RNLAF is the first foreign military service to learn how to install Arrowhead kits themselves, and they will complete all remaining installations in the Netherlands," said David Starr, Arrowhead Netherlands program manager at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. Lockheed Martin was awarded the contract in April 2005. It includes the delivery of 24 Arrowhead kits as well as spares, peculiar ground support equipment, training and two Arrowhead kit installations. Fourteen kits have been delivered to date, and the remaining 10 will be delivered by October 2007. Lockheed Martin said its Arrowhead kit provides advanced electro-optical targeting and pilotage system to maximizing safe flight in day, night and adverse-weather environments.
