Longbow Fire Control Radars (FCRs) allow automatic and rapid multi-target engagement in all weather, over multiple terrains, and through any battlefield obscurant.

The Longbow Limited Liability Co., a joint venture of Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman, received a $51 million foreign military sales contract to provide the Republic of Korea with Longbow Fire Control Radars (FCRs) for the AH-64E Apache attack helicopter. The contract includes six Longbow FCR systems, spares, and in-country support. Production is scheduled through 2016, with assembly of the Longbow FCR performed at Lockheed Martin's Ocala and Orlando, FL, facilities, and Northrop Grumman's Baltimore, MD, facility. Since 1998, Longbow FCR has provided Apache aircrews with target detection, location, classification, and prioritization.
