Lockheed Martin has announced that it has received a Performance Based Logistics (PBL) contract from the US Army for sustainment of the Modernized Target Acquisition Designation Sight/Pilot Night Vision Sensor (M-TADS/PNVS) system. The $90.6 million contract is the first of three options under the $111 million PBL contract awarded in 2012. The total four-year contract value is $375 million.

M-TADS/PNVS is the advanced electro-optical fire control system that Apache helicopter pilots use for safe flight in day, night or bad weather missions. It provides Apache pilots with long-range precision engagement and flying capabilities.

This firm, fixed price contract provides a comprehensive sustainment solution that enables mission readiness, reduces operation and support costs, and drives reliability and maintainability improvements. The PBL is designed to optimise system readiness via an integrated, affordable performance package strategy.

Tom Eldredge, program director of M-TADS/PNVS international and support programs at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control, said: ‘Lockheed Martin works closely with the US Army to provide highly reliable products to the warfighter while implementing efficiencies and cost-saving measures. The US government and industry teams are focused on the continuous improvement of processes, services and products that benefit our warfighters.’
