Modernized Turret

Improves Reliability & Maintainability
For the AH-64E Apache

Apache Fire Control Modernized Turret

Modernized Turret (M-TUR) replaces the legacy Target Acquisition Designation Sight (TADS) system turret assembly as the structure that interfaces with the Apache AH-64E aircraft and houses the M-TADS/PNVS sensors.

M-TUR increases operational availability and boosts system performance for pilots. The enhanced performance addresses user requirements for greater rates and acceleration of sensors in azimuth and elevation. The new design incorporates reliability and maintainability improvements for significant life cycle cost savings.



Houses the motors that drive the azimuth and elevation movement of the sensors.

Provides reliability and maintainability improvements, resulting in operation and support cost savings of more than $500 million over the life of the Apache.

Provides performance improvements that help the pilot track targets more effectively and mitigate the effects of aircraft vibration on the M-TADS/PNVS system.
