The Army has awarded a $95.8 million contract to Lockheed Martin for the Modernized Target Acquisition Designation Sight, a night-vision system used by Apache helicopter pilots.

Fielded in 2005, the system gives pilots long-range precision engagement and “pilotage capabilities,” according to Lockheed Martin. The system can aid pilots during the day, at night and during adverse weather conditions.

Since it was fielded 17 years ago, more than 1,350 of the systems and spares have been delivered to the Army and international customers, according to the company.

The contract has a completion date of Nov. 30, 2027, according to a Dec. 19 Defense Department notice.
