Lockheed Martin Delivers First VNsight Sensor to the U.S. Army

ORLANDO, Fla. July 6, 2011 VNsight Modernized Target Acquisition Designation Sight/Pilot Night Vision Sensor (M-TADS/PNVS)

The VNsight visible/near infrared sensor provides the warfighter with significant tactical advantages and increased situational awareness, particularly in low-light-level conditions.  The VNsight sensor is integrated into the Modernized PNVS, the pilotage system for the Apache.

By blending VNsight imagery with the M-PNVS FLIR imagery, pilots can accurately see and identify cultural and military lighting, including lasers, markers, beacons and tracer rounds.  This ensures safer flying conditions and enhanced mission capability by improving situational awareness in low-light-level conditions and situations where existing light sources cannot be imaged by the FLIR.

The VNsight Lot 1 production contract includes sensors and spares to equip two U.S. Apache battalions and an international customer.  Delivering the first unit on schedule establishes the start of a production line capable of producing eight VNsight units per month.  With production options for up to ten U.S. Army battalions spanning into 2015, the VNsight production line will continue to provide a valuable asset to AH-64D pilots.  

Bethesda, Md. $45.8 billion
