Selex Galileo selected for US Army Apache lasers

29th May 2012 - 07:04 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Selex Galileo has revealed that it has been awarded an €18 million ($23.5M) contract by prime contractor Lockheed Martin to upgrade the laser targeting capabilities of Army Apache helicopters for the US. The company made the announcement in a 28 May, 2012 statement.

The award follows on from Selex Galileo’s development contract for a Modernised Laser Rangefinder/Designator (M-LRFD) and will see the company supplying an initial undisclosed quantity of the lasers for Lockheed Martin’s Modernised Target Acquisition Designation Sight (M-TADS) upgrade programme.

According to the company, M-TADS significantly improves the targeting capabilities of the US Army’s Apache helicopters and the M-LRFD lasers will help keep pilots out of the reach of enemy weapons by allowing precision targeting at long ranges.
