Lockheed Martin has been awarded a $21.7 million contract to modernize the targeting and pilotage systems of the U.S. Army's AH-64E Apache helicopter.
Lockheed will install new laser rangefinder designator kits for targeting in Apache’s day sensor assembly, the company said Wednesday.
“We are currently fielding laser kits as part of the M-DSA phase 1 upgrade and are on track to equip approximately seven Apache battalions a year,” said Matt Hoffman, director of targeting and pilotage systems at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control.
Lockheed Martin will deliver 786 rangefinder designator kits for the Army and international clients.
The company is also set to begin producing the second phase of modernized day sensor assembly after qualifying the upgrades.
