Lockheed Martin has won $10 million Foreign Military Sales (FMS) contract for support services for the Modernized Target Acquisition Designation Sight/ Pilot Night Vision Sensor for the Apache Attack helicopter.

The Boeing AH-64 Apache is an American twin-turboshaft attack helicopter with a tailwheel-type landing gear arrangement and a tandem cockpit for a crew of two. It features a nose-mounted sensor suite for target acquisition and night vision systems. It is armed with a 30 mm (1.18 in) M230 chain gun carried between the main landing gear, under the aircraft's forward fuselage, and four hardpoints mounted on stub-wing pylons for carrying armament and stores, typically a mixture of AGM-114 Hellfire missiles and Hydra 70 rocket pods.

Work is expected to be completed by March 31, 2024, US (United States) Department of Defense said in a statement Friday.
