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.
