“Elbit Systems of America is pleased to provide this tactical targeting ability to the US Navy AH-1W team,” said Elbit Systems of America president and CEO Raanan Horowitz. “The NTSU enables extended target acquisition, recognition and engagement ranges and offers a critical and cost effective increase in survivability to the warfighter.”

The indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) contract from the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Crane, Indiana is for the supply of the night targeting system upgrade, and associated line items, for the AH – 1W Cobra helicopters.

Work will be performed in Merrimack, New Hampshire and is expected to be completed over the next five years.

The NTSU system builds upon the legacy of the combatproven Night Targeting System (NTS). The improvements in the optics allow the warfighter a significant increase in ability to detect, recognize, identify and prosecute targets at standoff ranges in all weather and lighting conditions.
