Lockheed Martin awarded TSS contracts

6th December 2011 - 09:05 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Lockheed Martin has won two contracts for the Target Sigh System (TSS) from the Naval Surface Warfare Center. The TSS is the fire control system for the US Marine Corps' AH-1Z Cobra attack helicopter, and the contracts will see Lockheed Martin provide spare parts and programme support for the system.

Worth $30.6 million, the contracts are follow-on contracts to the initial programme awards, issued in 2008 when Lockheed Martin won the TSS production contract. Lockheed Martin delivered the first TSS in 2009.

According to the company, the latest contracts will see Lockheed Martin provide spare units and parts as well as programme support for the AH-1Z fleet. TSS integrates state-of-the-art sensors to provide aviators with superior imagery through a highly stabilized sensor suite, specifically tailored to the AH-1Z platform.  The suite includes a laser designator, colour TV camera and a third-generation, mid-wave, forward-looking infrared sensor with advanced image processing.
