Globalsecuritycompany Lockheed Martin said it has secured a contract worth 102 million U.S. dollars from Egypt to upgrade the country’s Apache military helicopter to the E-model version of the aircraft.
This modernization for the Egyptian Air Force includes Lockheed Martin’s Gen III Target Acquisition Designation Sight/Pilot Night Vision Sensor (Gen III TADS/PNVS) and the Gen III Day Sensor Assembly (Gen III DSA).
As part of the deal, Lockheed Martin will be delivering the upgraded sensor kits as part of a remanufacture effort to boost the D-model Apaches to E-models.
“Lockheed Martin is committed to a strong and sustained partnership with our customers around the world,” remarked Tom Eldredge, Director of Lockheed Martin’s Missiles and Fire Control Rotary Wing Sensors program.
“This contract enables us to respond rapidly to Egypt’s emerging defense needs, including requirements for new sensor systems and upgrades,” he stated.
The award is part of an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (ID/IQ) contract signed with the US Army. The ID/IQ serves as the contracting vehicle to provide Gen III DSA and Gen III TADS/PNVS systems and services.
