“Our high-performing, reliable sensor system for the Apache helicopter will give Indian Army aviators the ability to acquire, engage and destroy adversary threats from extended ranges,” said Mike Taylor, director of M-TADS/PNVS international and sustainment programs at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. “The capability that our sensor provides results in enhanced aircraft survivability, pilot safety and mission success.”

Fielded in 2005, M-TADS/PNVS provides Apache pilots with long-range, precision engagement and pilotage capabilities for safe flight during day, night and adverse weather missions. The forward-looking infrared sensors’ enhanced image resolution enable Apache aircrews to accurately identify targets and provide situational awareness to ground troops outside of detection ranges. Lockheed Martin has delivered more than 1,300 M-TADS/PNVS systems and spares to the U.S. Army and international customers.
