Lockheed Martin has been awarded a $142 million follow-on contract by the U.S. Army to produce Apache Arrowhead systems for the Apache attack helicopter. The contract extends production of the systems through December 2011.
The Apache Arrowhead system is a sight and pilot night vision sensor for the AH-64D Apache helicopter. Lockheed first introduced the system for the U.S. Army in May of 2005 and incorporated it into the first Apache attack helicopters in the next month.
The contract includes the delivery of 55 systems to the U.S. Army helicopters as well as several systems for international customers.
