The US Army has awarded a $142m contract to Lockheed Martin to provide 55 Apache Arrowhead systems for its AH-64D Apache attack helicopters.

The Apache Arrowhead is a combat-proven night-vision targeting system that uses second generation long-wave infrared sensors specifically designed for the Apache.

The Arrowhead kits overhaul the Army’s Target Acquisition Designation Sight/Pilot Night Vision Sensor providing the Apache pilots advanced long-range, electro-optical precision engagement and pilotage capabilities, ensuring safe flight in all weather conditions.

Lockheed Martin Apache fire control vice-president Bob Gunning said the Arrowhead will enhance system reliability and maintainability while improving Apache operation in severe environments at increased tempo.

Under the contract, the company will provide 55 Arrowhead kits.
