L-3 to provide enhanced Apache displays

5th September 2011 - 12:13 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


L-3 Communications announced today that its Display Systems unit has received a competitively-awarded firm-fixed price contract from Lockheed Martin to develop a new 5-x-5-inch color Active Matrix Liquid Crystal Display (AMLCD) assembly for the US Army's AH-64D Apache helicopter. L-3 has extensive experience supporting the Apache platform, with over 1,000 display systems delivered to Lockheed Martin and the US Army.

L-3's new color AMLCD assembly will be a direct replacement for the current monochromatic display unit, and will be used to enhance the Apache's target acquisition and night vision sensor display capabilities. It provides one of the highest resolution display systems available on US military platforms, resulting in greatly enhanced target detection and recognition for Apache pilots during day or night operations.

"We are honored to have earned this opportunity to extend our outstanding relationship with Lockheed Martin on the AH-64D Apache program. Lockheed Martin and the US Army have shown great confidence in our ability to develop this complex system upgrade for our warfighters and meet all program requirements on time and on budget," said Bruce Coffey, president of L-3 Display Systems. "L-3 is a leader in providing high-performance display systems, processing and avionics subsystem integration solutions for demanding environments, and we look forward to providing our most advanced display technology for the Apache helicopter."
