The 35 Modernized Day Sensor Assembly (M-DSA) kits and spares will also include a new laser-pointer marker and a multi-mode laser with eye-safe lasing capability.
"These enhancements enable faster situational understanding for aircrews and more accurate coordination with ground troops," Matt Hoffman, the M-TADS/PNVS director at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control, said. "With the Apache expected to be in service through 2045, we're continuing to invest in sensor upgrades, such as the M-DSA, to ensure aircrews have the capabilities they need to address emerging threats."
Lockheed has delivered more than 1,350 M-TADS/PNVS systems to the Army and other countries.
