ORLANDO, FLORIDA (BNS): The Longbow LLC, a joint venture of Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman Corporation, received a $90.6 million contract to provide Saudi Arabia with LONGBOW Fire Control Radars (FCRs) for the AH-64 Apache Attack Helicopter.

The contract award includes AH-64E LONGBOW FCRs, spares and support for the Royal Saudi Land Forces Aviation Command. The contract also includes LONGBOW FCRs for the Saudi Arabia National Guard and LONGBOW Mast Mounted Assemblies for the US Army.

"The AH-64E LONGBOW FCR's new Radar Electronics Unit provides greater processing power and provision for significant growth while reducing weight and maintenance costs," Mike Taylor, Longbow LLC president and director of LONGBOW programmes at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control, was quoted as saying in a Lockheed news release.

The LONGBOW FCR has provided Apache aircrews with target detection, location, classification and prioritization. In all weather, over multiple terrains and through any battlefield obscurant, the radar allows automatic and rapid multi-target engagement.
