M-TADS/PNVS wins award

12th December 2011 - 16:35 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The Modernized Target Acquisition Designation Sight/Pilot Night Vision Sensor (M-TADS/PNVS) on the AH-64D Apache attack helicopter has been selected for the 2011 US Secretary of Defense Performance Based Logistics (PBL) Award, according to a 12 December 2011 Lockheed Martin announcement.

The US Army Program Executive Office Aviation, the Apache Program Management Office and Lockheed Martin received the sub-system level PBL award, given annually to recognise outstanding achievements in providing warfighters with exceptional operational capability.

According to Lockheed Martin, the Apache M-TADS/PNVS PBL programme provides efficiencies in supply chain management that have increased reliability and system readiness for the warfighter.  This PBL programme is a comprehensive sustainment solution that enables outstanding fleet mission capability, improves reliability and maintainability, and reduces sustainment costs using innovative supply concepts.

Known as the ‘eyes of the Apache’, M-TADS/PNVS modernizes the US Army's TADS/PNVS by upgrading the infrared sensors and associated electronics.  It provides Apache pilots the most advanced long-range, electro-optical precision engagement and pilotage capabilities, ensuring safe flight during day, night and adverse-weather missions.
