ORLANDO, FLORIDA (BNS): Lockheed Martin has received a $22 million contract to provide Modernised Target Acquisition Designation Sight/Pilot Night Vision Sensor (M-TADS/PNVS) Special Repair Activities for the Royal Saudi Land Forces Aviation Command's Apache attack helicopters.

Under the three-year contract awarded by the U S Army, Lockheed Martin will provide tools and test equipment to maintain components of the M-TADS/PNVS system.

The Royal Saudi Land Forces Aviation Command will receive in-country support beginning in the first quarter of 2014. The period of performance under this contract extends through 2017.

Fielded in 2005, the M-TADS/PNVS system provides Apache attack helicopter pilots with long-range, precision engagement and pilotage capabilities for mission success and flight safety in day, night and adverse weather missions.

Forward-looking infrared sensors provide enhanced image resolution that enables Apache aircrews to prosecute targets and provide situational awareness in support of ground troops outside detection ranges.

Lockheed Martin has delivered more than 1,200 M-TADS/PNVS systems to the US Army and international customers.
