Lockheed Martin has secured an USD80 million contract to supply fire-control sensors to be fitted to Boeing AH-64E Apache attack helicopters ordered by Indonesia in 2013.
A US Department of Defense notice on 29 April said Lockheed Martin had been contracted to supply Indonesia with eight Lot 9 Modernized Target Acquisition Designations/Sight Pilot Night Vision Sensors (M-TADS/PNVS), as well as spares.
The contract progresses as a Foreign Military Sale (FMS), with deliveries estimated to be complete by 2018.
Washington confirmed in August 2013 that it had agreed to sell eight Apache helicopters to Indonesia. The FMS deal is costed at USD500 million.
