WASHINGTON, Jan. 19 (UPI) -- Lockheed Martin has received a $14 million contract to provide Target Sight Systems for Pakistan's AH-1Z attack helicopters.

The contract includes software development and testing, system modification, and installation requirements to integrate the TSS into the Cobra helicopters. The TSS provides target information and tracking data for the helicopter, in addition to passive targeting for integrated weapons.

TSS is a multi-sensor, electro-optical/infrared fire control system developed for the U.S. Marine Corps. The system uses a turret mounted onto the nose of the aircraft, and features multi-mode and multi-target tracking capabilities.

Work on the contract will be performed in Florida, and is expected to be complete by December 2017.
