Lockheed Martin has won a $67.6 million contract to provide electro-optical sensors for integration onto AH-64E Apache attack helicopters of the Indian and Taiwanese forces.

“Lockheed Martin Corp., Orlando, Florida, was awarded a $67,647,172 modification (P00001) to Foreign Military Sales (India, Taiwan) contract for modernized target acquisition designation sight/pilot night vision sensors (M-TADS/PNVS) and its subcomponents on the Apache 64D/E helicopter,” the Pentagon announced Friday.

The M-TADS/PNVS is a long-range, precision engagement and pilotage solution for day, night and adverse weather missions. The electro-optical sensor provides Apache aircrews with situational awareness.

Work is expected to be completed by April 2023.
