The awarded contract also includes the supply of the modernized laser range finder designators, and flight code processors to UAE, the statement said.
Work will be performed in Orlando, Florida, with an estimated completion date of April 30, 2022.
Modernized Day Sensor Assembly (M-DSA) is the next step in the modernization of the Target Acquisition Designation Sight/Pilot Night Vision Sensor (M-TADS/PNVS) system, also known as Arrowhead.
