Lockheed Martin has won two contracts totaling $229.4 million related to target acquisition systems for the Army’s Apache helicopters.
The Modernized Target Acquisition Designation/Pilot Night Vision System (M-TADS/PNVS) was originally fielded in 2005, Lockheed Martin said in a release. The system is used by pilots for targeting and pilotage in day, night, and adverse-weather missions.
Under the first, $215.8 million contract—a foreign military sales contract—Lockheed will deliver M-TADS/PNVS systems to India, according to the Defense Department.
Under the second, $13.6 million contract, the company will refurbish the M-TADS/PNVS systems.
Lockheed was the only bidder on both contracts.
Work will be performed in Orlando, Fla., and in other locations to be determined upon each order.
The first contract is slated to wrap up in December 2021; the second, June 2017.
