Israel Aircraft Industries (IAI) Taman division and Italy's Agusta have conducted a demonstration firing of a Lockheed Martin AGM-114 Hellfire missile from an Agusta A129 attack helicopter. The A129 was fitted with Taman's advanced Night Targeting System (NTS-A).

During the firings on an Israeli range, the missile scored hits on the target tank using the NTS-A's day and night modes. NTS-A is a development of Taman's NTS targeting system based around a second generation forward-looking infrared. NTS is in service on US Marine Corps and Israeli air force Bell AH-1 Cobra helicopters.
