    Lockheed Martin has been awarded a $151 million contract to support the Target Sight System (TSS) on US and Pakistan AH-1Z Cobra attack helicopters, the US Department of Defense said in a press release.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The TSS incorporates a third-generation forward-looking infrared sensor that provides target sighting in day, night, or adverse weather conditions.

    "The TSS is a large-aperture mid-wave forward-looking infrared sensor with a laser designator/rangefinder turret and provides the capability to identify and laser-designate targets at maximum weapon range, significantly enhancing platform survivability and lethality," the release explained.

    The AH-1Z Cobra attack helicopter is used by US Marine Corps expeditionary forces.
