Lockheed Martin develops tech to let Apache pilots see in color

  • Lockheed Martin (LMT) has unveiled technology that will enable Apache helicopter pilots to view targets and surveillance data in high-resolution color rather than in the fuzzy black and white images they get now.
  • The technology should help pilots avoid mistakes such as an attack on an Iraqi wedding in 2007, when 12 people were killed.
  • Lockheed and the army need to negotiate a contract for the retrofitting of all its 680 Apache E-model choppers with the technology.

    LMT is such a giant that I don't really think many of these little releases will have much effect on the bottom line. But all together, the stock has been on an unbelievable run. It is a lot tougher to buy in at $160 than it was at $90, though. Good discussion of LMT as a dividend growth stock over here:

    Fear from the sequester in 2012/2013 gave DGI a perfect entry point coupled with the chart pattern of blood-on-the-street. I added LMT @ $87.18. Since then, capital appreciation has been bolstered by a dividend increase.
