US Army Configures Apaches for Sea Duty

The U.S. Army is engineering its Apache AH-64 attack helicopters with additional avionics, radar and sensor technology to perform better in maritime environments.
The Army plans to test these and other upgrades in 2017 in order to keep the attack helicopter platform current into the 2050s.
The upgrades will also give the Apache the ability to better communicate with assets from other services through a connection with LINK 16, a digital data link used widely by the Air Force and Navy.
The first AH-64E Block III Apaches are now returning from combat service in Afghanistan, after deploying this past September.
