Longbow Fire Control Radar integrates with the M299 smart launcher and the Longbow Hellfire missile on U.K. Apache AH Mk-1 aircraft.

AgustaWestland awarded Longbow LLC, a joint venture of Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman, an $86 million contract to support Longbow FCR (Fire Control Radar) systems on the U.K. Apache AH Mk-1 aircraft. The four-year contract includes engineering services, integrated logistics, and an in-country repair capability. Support services will continue through March 2014 and will be performed at Wattisham Airfield in the U.K.; Lockheed Martin facilities in Ocala and Orlando, FL; and Northrop Grumman facilities in Baltimore, MD. The Longbow FCR provides Apache aircrews with target detection, location, classification, and prioritization, allowing automatic and rapid multitarget engagement.
