Additional Army AH-64D Apache attack helicopters to receive low-light pilotage sensor upgrades
ORLANDO, Fla., 13 Oct. 2011. U.S. Army aviation officials needed a low-light TV camera sensor for the AH-64D Apache attack helicopter. They found their solution from the Lockheed Martin Corp. Missiles and Fire Control segment in Orlando, Fla. Lockheed Martin won a $19 million Army follow-on production contract for the VNsight visible-light and near-infrared sensor that helps Apache pilots see targets and obstacles in low-light conditions. VNsight is integrated into the latest pilot night vision sensor pilotage system of the Apache's Arrowhead Modernized Target Acquisition Designation Sight/Pilot Night Vision Sensor (M-TADS/PNVS).
