Lockheed Martin develops tech to let Apache pilots see in color

|About: Lockheed Martin (LMT)|By:, SA News Editor

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.
