A-10 NVIS Modification Program

A-10 NVIS Modification Program

This program was the production phase of a project to perform the 100% NVIS modification of the interior and exterior lights for the A-10.  The equipment supplied by Apache in support of this program was fabricated to proprietary Apache designs developed during the design phase of the program.  Due to the technical superiority of the Apache designs, Apache was awarded a sole-source contract for the provision of all of the A-10 NVIS lighting hardware.  Apache was ultimately awarded a series of options for a total of 262 kits, plus spares.

The technical configuration of he NVIS lighting equipment designed by Apache for the A-10 is considered by industry experts to be the most advanced in the world.  The Apache A-10 modification kit required the internal modification of instruments, gauges and radios.  Apache’s engineers developed intricate modification designs that introduced NVIS filter mediums within the small confines of flight instruments.  During the course of the program, Apache technicians were required to open, modify and close almost 3,000 LRU’s.
