ORLANDO, Fla. The Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC), Crane Division awarded Lockheed Martin with a $33.9 million follow-on production contract for the Target Sight System (TSS) -- the fire control system -- for the AH-1Z Cobra attack helicopter operated by the U.S. Marine Corps. The system's sensors enable pilots to have enhanced capabilities for acquiring, tracking, and designating targets.

The highly sensor suite consists of a laser designator, color video display, and a third-generation, mid-wave, forward-looking infrared (FLIR) sensor with advanced image processing. In 2011, the AH-1Z deployed operationally with TSS.

TSS Lot 10 deliveries will be complete in December 2015.
